    I'm looking for a pattern using men's shirts. I saw one in a quilt magazine and can't remember which one it was in. The quilter had made it from her grandfather's plaid shirts. Does anyone know where I can find that pattern :?:

    This was not in a magazine, but I have collected shirts so I can make this one someday. I think it is a great way to recycle or to have a keepsake.

    Thanks for the great idea. This would be perfect to make memory quilts out of my dad's shirts. Then I can give them to my kids. Terrific!
