    The 1st one of 2

    I was asked to make memory quilts from shirts of a friends father who passed away. Thank you to everyone for your input when I hesitating on which way to go.

    I just finished the first top. I used Bonnie Hunters scrappy mountain majesty as the pattern. I am happy with how it turned out. I just have to think about what to do for quilt #2 now

    Wow! Wonderful quilt! I'm sure it will be treasured!

    As for suggestions for quilt #2... I am sure you'll find another great pattern. ... or maybe decide to use the same pattern with different colored shirts. Be sure to show us pictures of it when it's finished!

    Your choice of quilt pattern is just perfect to show off a nice collection of shirts. It is one of the best memory quilts I have ever seen. I will be anxious to see the second one.
