    Hello, my girlfriend's husband recently died from cancer. She finally decided it was time to go through his clothes. She would like me to make some quilts from his shirts for her and his two young daughters. I know how to make a t-shirt quilt, but she would also like a golf shirt quilt made out of his polo shirts similar to a t-shirt quilt and also a dress shirt quilt using his dress shirts and ties. Can anyone help me out with a pattern? Thanks :)

    I just made up my own pattern. I took all of the shirts and deciced how big the logo would be in inches and then laid it out in power point. THis is what I ended up with. The fill in blocks are just cotton.

    If the dress shirts are cotton, or mainly cotton, any pattern would work. I imagine polo shirts would want to be stabilized before they would cooperate.
