Showcasing ~ Dad's Barn Quilt Block ~ Tutorial

Many quilts from long ago were made with old pieces of clothing, instead of new fabric like we use today. Today's showcased tutorial is an example of upcycling men's button down shirts into a quilt.

Learn how to upcycle men's shirts into the Dad's Barn quilt block ~ Tutorial by Joy's Jots, Shots & Whatnots

Joy, from Joy's Jots, Shots & Whatnots, shows how to sew a Design as You Go Dad's Barn Quilt Block, made with men's shirts. Of course you could use any fabrics. The block is an example of improv (improvisation) - making it up as you go along, without the need to measure. The step by step photo tutorial demonstrates the process.

Joy's quilt block was added to the Quilting & Patchwork link party. You might like to check out the following quilt block tutorials at the Quilting & Patchwork linky...
