    I haven't worked with all that many plaids before, think I would have to break them up somehow with some solids. Good luck.

    Seems like you would need to do tight quilting. This is going to be an interesting quilt! Looking forward to seeing the finished quilt.

    I was asked to make a memory quilt from a ladies Grandson's clothes and she included undies too. Just use the part where the fabric is still good.

    Very neat. I saw a quilt once that someone had made from a loved one's (male) shirts and it was a lot of plaids like this. It looked great, and was a neat way to remember them.
