    Split rail fance might look nice in flannels.
    Whatever you decide, I'm sure it will make a special memory for you.

    Personally, I would just do something simple like patchwork squares or bricks.

    This site is too cool. She makes a small quilt using just seven shirts. Of course, you could make a larger using more shirts.

    Bearpaw is a nice block for plaids. Another good one might be churndash. When I did one a few years ago, I did the bearpaws, as the guy was an avid hunter and that just seemed to be the logical choice.

    Thanks, I like this site and the directions on how to cut the shirts up.
