This is the last week of October, a month of playing with shades of brown fabrics. This month I finished a brown themed quilt made with deconstructed thrift store men's shirts and woven yardage. Pictures were in last week's post. It was a Let's Book It project from last month.
During the last two weeks of this month, I have been working on another Let's Book It project, another Bonnie Hunter quilt pattern. This one is called Nifty Thrifty and is from her "Scraps and Shirttails" book. Again, I'm using fabrics from deconstructed thrift store men's shirts and woven yardage. Another brown themed quilt. Hopefully I'll finish this one during November.
My plans are to cut the outer border from the men's shirt under the book. The pattern calls for 5" borders, but I may change that to either a 3" or 4" border if I see I don't have enough of the shirt fabric.
I ran out of the dark shirt fabric I was using in the sashing and will need to improvise the inner border. I'm auditioning a yellow square in the first picture. Seems to look okay.
To see what others made with brown fabrics this week, go here.
I'm also linking this post to Sharon Vrooman's October Let's Book It post.
Here is another cute video clip I found a few weeks ago.
