    It made a great shirt! And someday when he gets tired of it or it gets a bit worn you will have more scraps for quilts!

    My dad used to call this sort of shirt his "shopping shirt" as he maintained that mum could find him easily in the crowd! You've done a great job and I like your humour about having scraps left over for quilting.

    I think we tend to forget what our sweethearts do to make us happy so glad to see someone else make sure they take of theirs.

    Nice shirt. Great play on a "Hawaiian" shirt. DH is pretty smart and you're pretty crafty!

    It is great that you are rewarding his ongoing generosity by making this terrific shirt for him. You two make a wonderful pair.
