I have been dreaming of a linen quilt.

Pile of washed linen clothes from the 50 cent rack at the thrift store.  About $8 worth of clothing--mostly 100% linen but some are linen/cotton blends.  (that shiny grey there is a lining)

Buttons, zippers, labels and cut up linen fabric.

Close up of the lovely pile that will be a quilt.  I am going to do 5" squares in a random pattern.  after I have cut up all of this I am considering adding a few embroidered squares from my hankie/handtowel stash.
I am cutting up the squares now and will be posting the results soon!
