Best I can tell, this would be called a Coin Quilt.
I just wanted a "Quilt as You Go" project and decided to use
the 2 ½ inch strip cut from my Dad's shirts in this process.
One of Dad's bed pads and sheets were cut into long wide strips.
The sheeting was spray basted to the bed padding.
Starting at the left end of the pad strip, it was a stitch and flip all the way.
*Sashing the Panels*
Decided how panels should be arranged.
Labeled seams that will be sewn together.
Able to roll them back up to save space.
Used Gourmet Quilter's You-Tube directions to do the sashing.
So the 2½ inch strips cut from the shirts still worked. As directed by Gourmet quilter, I was able to cut a
1 inch and a 1½ inch strip from them.
I tried to cut only what I needed, since some strips would be needed for the border.
I really like how the sashing turned out.
Funny Ellisimo machine skipped stitches,
but when I switched to the little Brother, it plowed right through the thickness.
Even had some labels to turn up on the sashing.
To bind the quilt, I followed directions by Missouri Star Quilt Company.
Even after sashing, there were still lots of strips left over.
Notice here, I had them in the order I sewed them into the quilt.
A pattern was kept throughout the quilt.
Ironing the strips in half first is an EXCELLENT idea to help remind you of the right side of the fabric.
However, I sewed all the strips the wrong way the first time.
Kept all tags, pockets, etc. whenever possible.
Machine embroidered the label & hand stitched it to the back of the quilt. (Full name was blurred.)
As I was grabbing up the quilt to stitch the signature label, I found one more shirt label.
