    I decided to make memory pillows out of my grandpa's shirts. I got quite a few finished in time to give as Christmas gifts, and they were well received. I made the middle square a picture of my grandma and grandpa using fabric made for ink jet printers, and made the back of the pillows out of parts of the shirts. Each one was different, and all were pretty special. Thanks for all the suggestions. You guys are wonderful!

    That is such a good idea! Wish I had thought of that when my Dad passed on. I wasn't a quilter then so it never struck my mind!
    Merry Christmas!!
