I found several 100% cotton shirts at a local thrift shop. I gave them a good wash, removed the buttons and cut them up. All of these fat-quarters (and more) for $1.00 each shirt.
Perfect for Primitive projects and a way to re-purpose clothing that has fallen out of fashion or favor, I've salvaged the fabric for my quilts. I am hard pressed to find a quality (fabric) fat-quarters for a dollar anywhere. I thought about doing this after reading blogs where quilters are picking these up and some purchased the book, Scraps and Shirttails by Bonnie Hunter. Pat Speth has her Nickel Quilts, her books have some great designs as well. Be sure to check out your thrift shops where you might find some treasures of your own.
Happy Thrift Shopping, Re-purposing and Scrapping!
