I made this quilt for one of my brothers after my accident when I got home from rehab. It is made from homespuns and a whole lot of men's shirts. Since I didn't have the recommended triangle ruler, I made a template from the one printed in the magazine. By the time I finished this quilt, I thought I'd never do another triangle again!!  The reason I called it "Moose on the Loose" is because the fabric on the back is a plaid with a moose in the center of each square. I cut one moose out and sewed on the front of the quilt. If you look real close, you might find him. Since then I have done several quilts that have triangles in them, but I have a ruler or two now.

It's beautiful, Linda. The moose on the front is a clever touch! The colors are awesome, and I love the plaids.

Love what you did with the old shirts.  Ideas brewing for my old shirts, never thought of triangles!  The world isn't square.

Very nice use of old shirts!  Scrappy quilts are among my favorites.
