If you’ve been thinking about trying your hand at quilt making, before going to your local fabric store, source your quilt fabric from shirts at a thrift store or even in your own closet. Thrift stores are now overflowing thanks to those whose favorite quarantine pastime has been cleaning and the clothing racks are teeming with shirts in every color and pattern. You could even use the shirts of a loved one to honor their memory. No matter what shirts you decide to use, this is great way to learn how to quilt and be thrifty at the same time. Win, win situation in our book.
