Doe Shirts Quilt.

Doe clothes week?

Yep, I think so.

For this next week, I’ll be recapping some wearables or (in today’s case) clothing-inspired projects which use Doe.

 

Today’s featured project is Shirts!

(Exclamation point included because there’s nothing subtle or hidden about the inspiration–or enthusiasm–for this project.)

I think that fabric is fun and so is piecing. Mix the two together with a novel block design, and it’s got good times written all over it. This is probably why I’ve made so many Shirts blocks and projects since releasing the pattern 2 years ago. It’s certainly become one of my go-tos.

 

This version uses Doe and the coordinating Konas. I enjoyed making it because this type of project is always a good way for me to familiarize myself with the collection. I like figuring out how the different pieces in the collection can mix, as well as dreaming up what type of crazy wardrobe I can make.

 

Unfortunately, I forgot to take a good picture of this project before Market, and the project is now traveling to different trunk shows, so above is only a shot of the project pre-quilted, but I do have this shot from the booth. I ended up quilting it with some big stitch in many different colors.

It’s also been fun to see and participate in the All Shirts Swap hosted by May Chappell. Stay tuned to her blog for an announcement about something new coming up soon…

    I love the colors in Doe. That mini definitely shows them off nicely. Fun!

    My bundle of Doe just arrived as a shop in Canada has it all in stock already. It is really lovely, I am so looking forward to using it.
