Shirt circles

I am currently 9 circles behind, but have that 9 plus the rest of this week's prepped and ready to go.  I'm relaxed about catching up, as I deliberately took a break from these in order to  finish Walls (still not got a better name).

This is what I have to date:


My next job for this is to track down another shirt that will go with the three I'm using already: it's surprising how far a shirt will stretch but I will definitely need something extra, possibly by the end of the month.

Linking up with Audrey's monthly catch up for Quilty 365.

I really like these circles, Kaja, the different backgrounds and the stitching around and through them. It will be fun to watch how you put them together as well. You do such inspiring things!

It really is amazing how much material goes into things like clothing or even bedding!

Lovely. My favourite kind of fabrics: repurposed.

I suppose a stripey shirt could echo your stitching lines?
Its looking great : )

What size are your circles and squares? Seems like you sure get a lot more squares than I would expect from a shirt. (I might have a go at something like this after I finish my quilty 365 circles).

Oooh, this is coming along so well...I love, love, love that little bit of orange there - it's like a little beacon of light :) I've got my eye on one of Kim's dad's shirts - shame (or probably a good job) it's not still hanging in my wardrobe, haha! It's just got the brightest candy stripes I've ever seen and I want it for Kim's ocean waves quilt, he really should donate it since it's for his son, don't you think?!!!
