How to Make a Quilt Out of Upcycled Flannel Shirts

In honor of Earth Day I am sharing this upcycled quilt pattern from Swoodson Says.  It’s a quilt made from old flannel shirts.  What a wonderful idea and I bet it is super cozy.

The individual quilt blocks are easy and large half square triangles so the quilt should come together in no time.  To help you out, there are handy step by step photos and instructions for cutting out the flannel squares.

To get a lap size quilt, the designer says you will need between nine and eleven shirts.  Depending on the size(s) you have on hand you may need a few more or less.

It is always nice to make a project out of recycled or upcycled items.  Not only do you get the memories associated with some of the clothing pieces, you are doing something good for the environment by keeping the items out of a landfill.
