Mens Shirt Cuffs in a quilt

When I was cutting out the pieces for the original mens shirt quilt, the cuffs were too small for those pieces.  So I stacked them up until the stack was falling over.  Finally, I created a “box in a box” wallhanging from the cuffs and it turned out like this:

Cuff em Danno

I call it “Cuff ’em Danno!” …….like from Hawaii Five-O.  Get it?

Also, when using cuffs, you have to throw away some because sometimes the stabilizer used in them is WAY TOO STIFF!  But over half were usable.  I think the result was worth the effort.

About justbonnie2

My name is Bonnie and I have been quilting for over 40 years. In January, 2014, I attended a presentation in Punta Gorda, Florida by Bonnie Hunter (the scrap quilt lady!) and fell in love with making quilts from men's shirts. I have started this blog to share my passion, because all my friends think I'm crazy.
