    I just became obsessed with the men's cotton shirts thanks to Bonnie Hunter, I have made this pattern before and will make it again...it is the perfect size for a cover up. Everyone fights over my other one. I left the pockets on the quilt so it will have little pockets all over the quilt. It is flat, I didn't lay it out real well, I was in a hurry :D Hope you like it,

    I have been buying mens shirts at the thrift store too. They have one day a week at the one near me that you get everything you can stuff in the bag for $5. I roll them and cram in as many as I can. I'll make a quilt with them eventually.

    What is the name of this pattern? I have some shirts that I'd like to make a lap-sized quilt out of. This is great!

    OMG - fabulous idea! I just found a box of mending things in a closet and of course, my DH has gained a lot of weight since I hid the box - so now he can't wear the shirts, etc. - so was going to donate the shirts - now I have a wonderful idea of what to do with them!

    I have attached a pic of my baby with his hand in one of the pockets. My son has autism and has this collection of little bitty things....I figure he will put treasures in the pockets.

    It is beautiful. Isn't it the greatest to literally make something beautiful out of nothing. I was so lucky to see Bonnie Hunter's quilts in person.
