    That is probably one of the best looking "shirt" quilts I've seen! Great design! What a unique and absolutely fun way to use the buttons. Kudos to Kay!

    Great idea for a man's shirt quilt. It turned out wonderful. I've been saving a bunch of shirts for a project like this and now have a great idea to use to make it. Thank you for sharing.

    This is a great looking quilt!!!A thrift shop in our town had a 10 cent clearance sale on everything in the store--this makes me wish I had gone and stocked up on men's shirts! Would you share the instructions for doing the button-placket border? Very original--I love it!!!

    Neat quilt! Great use of the shirts, and love the button plackets for the border!

    It's a great quilt! I have bought a lot of shirts, but haven't yet started one. The quilting on it is just the way I like it: not overpowering the quilt, but adding dimension and interest.
