I "Up Cycled" a pair of blue patchwork shorts into a quilt!
I used a favorite pair of shorts, but your could use a dress, a shirt, or a favorite fabric. I cut the plaid at an angle which made it more interesting. I had to deal with bias edges, but that was OK. I love how it looks!
Here are the original shorts!
I used a variety of denim shirts and denim dresses for the borders strips.
Cut squares in a variety of sizes from the shorts --- 2" to 4 ". I cut 42 squares.
Cut strips in a variety of sizes --- 2 " wide to 3"
Sew one strip on one side of each block. Press and trim. You may want to starch as you press. I starch.
Step 10 --- Add more lattice and trim the ends
You will need to add a lattice strip to the bottom block on each row. Also add lattice strips to the right side of the last row on the right. You can put them on each block or just sew strips together in random order and sew it on all in one strip.
