the big fish shirt

I bought a shirt last weekend at that estate sale that left me at a loss for words. It was the fish print that caught my attention, then the exposed Columbia Sportswear tag. I picked it up because I thought a family member might like it.
Then I saw the size -- 5X -- and I knew it was going to be the focus fabric for a quilt. Here it is, modled by Teenage Son. There's a lot of neat fish print here!

Oh that is really cool fish fabric. And to think if you could actually find a print like tha tto buy it would cost way so much more than wha tyou had paid. Great find. Great deal. Great reuse, repurpose...And a great deal of fabric from 1 shirt.
