    Son's Shirt Quilt

    My son, Joe, had a bunch of shirts from his Boy Scout days, but not enough for a quilt, so we added a few from high school, and one from grade school. A couple of boy scout and cub scout neckerchiefs. And a rag-shirt quilt is born. I gave it to him for his birthday this week, along with the 2 pillows sitting on it.
