    They're great. She will treasure them. Isn't it amazing how far you can 'stretch' fabric when you want to!!!!!!!

    What a beautiful job you did on both quilts - perhaps your son's wife might like a quilt done using her Dad's shirts. Might be something to ask your son. Just a thought.

    I like this idea better than throwing out the shirts. A useful commemorative reminder. They both look great.

    You did a wonderful job on both quilts. I have never used clothing to make a quilt. I was just wondering if all of the darker blue fabric in the twin size quilt was cut from only one shirt. BTW you really did a good job of "winging" it on that second quilt.

    i just finished a couple of quilts with this pattern!! it was an easy one to do, compared to some others. i just used my scraps in pastels with off white on white prints and it turned out good.

    What a great way to cherish memories. You are such a good friend. Your quilt is great...have made several for family reunions...although I can't remember the name off hand. Got my pattern from Quilter's Cache. I see you also gave out the pattern and great tutorial. Thanks...will save it for future reference.
