Spinning Oxfords

Here it is! The memorial quilt for a friend's Mom. She passed away this last summer, and she loved her Oxford shirts! The entire front, including the sashing (but not the binding), was made from her crisp, starched shirts!

I hope it doesn't appear washed out with the snow behind it, but, up close, it looks like a summer picnic quilt. And it's the perfect drape - the heavy seams just melt into the Quilter's Dream Puff batting.

This is my favorite one yet and will be VERY hard to give away.


  1. You did a wonderful job. She will be pleased I'm sure.

  2. Lovely work. Did you use a pattern or was it a design you came up with. I am sure that your friend will love the quilt....and memories.

  3. Awesome sauce! You are right, this is the best one yet. Having all the same fabric must have been such a relief. This looks great! I love the combination of plaids/stripes with the plain fabric in each block. You're the Man! um, no. You're the Woman! better. You're the Quilter! best.

  4. Did I mention how much I love that RED binding?


I'd love to hear from you!
