    Well he did a great job of picking colors, and you did a great job of placing, piecing and quilting, I love it.

    Handsome quilt for a 15 yo. And what a thrifty, visual lesson for him to understand for years to come.

    Such a great idea! Nice job.
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    What an awesome quilt! Great idea to use shirts from Goodwill. I will start collecting immediately! Thanks.
    What do we live for, if it is not to make life less difficult for each other?

    It came out very nice.. I did a queen size rag quilt from flannel shirts I got at Goodwill.. I loved the quality choices there were.. The store that I went to sells the clothes by the pound... and I started collecting in the summer so there were plenty of long sleeve shirts to be had..

    What a wonderful idea, I have to remember this. Love the assorted prints/colors. good job. How much do you think you saved this way?
    Freedom is costly and quilting keeps us busy...
