The Facebook virtual quilt museum, Quilts-Antique and Vintage, have been discussing men's wear used in quilts. They have been sharing some remarkable quilts. I was looking at the Eastside Detroit quilt I purchased earlier this year and remembered its use of men's shirts was part of its charm. All those lovely stripes, and some big pieces of a small check.
The red stripe, blue and white stripes, and blue, grey and white are all shirting fabrics. Also a brown and white stripe, and a red, white and blue stripe.
