Recycling fabrics: Pauline Mills

This beautiful quilt was made by quilter and Guild member Pauline Mills. Pauline is totally committed to using recycled fabrics, this piece is made entirely from striped shirts!

We are now living in ‘a throw away society. The UK now sends many thousands of tonnes of clothing to landfill every year!’

We hope this has given you some inspiration to reuse and up-cycle fabrics in your next sewing project. Pauline has written a full article ‘Recycle, re-use, re-invent’ which features in The Quilters Guild magazine. If you are a Young Quilter member and would like to read this article to find out more about recycling fabrics, email us at and we’ll send you a copy.
