    Recent finish - this one for my younger son

    I finished this recently. Now just have to get it delivered to my son. This one won't be a surprise since he has seen it partially completed. Send this one to my LAer too. Love doing that and it could become a habit though I keep telling myself I HAVE to learn how to do it myself. LOL!

    I made this from men's shirts. And I am really quite pleased with the way it turned out.

    Smile Sons's quilt

    Wow great colors for a man and not dark and drab. Love your back yard too.

    Happy Mom's day.

    Really beautiful, making a quilt from men's shirts is on my today list. My husband is retired and I have a mess of his old oxford button downs.

    You should be pleased, it's wonderful. I love recycling shirts. Building a stash with plaid flanels right now.

    What a fabulous quilt for a guy! And I love the quilting, your photo setting, and especially the dog sneaking up on something in the bushes - what a hoot ... thanks for sharing.

    Your quilt is perfect in every way. Love the idea of making the quilt from shirts and you did the perfect job of coordinating the fabrics from the shirts. It is very impressive.

    I really like this pattern. It looks like a very manly quilt.
