    Those look great! You gave shirts a new life and turned them into some wonderful quilts. And I love the added pillowcases. I am sure they will be appreciated. Good job.

    Those are great Hilary! I like the 'plaid' effect on the first one and the boxer fabric is a hoot!

    Your friend must be tickled pink that her fabrics have been used so creatively.

    I know these will be treasured!! :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Great quilts Hillary. I was just looking at some old pictures and yours popped up. What is the pattern for the first one. I really like it. I'm thinking I need some old men's shirts, your quilts using them are great.

    Great job! Would never know these are shirt scraps. Men should be so pleased. Makes me want to hit the yard sales for shirts.

    Congrats, you made wonderful quilts for a wonderful reason. The first one is my fav, I really love how the sashing forms a plaid pattern and ties all the different colors together! Thank you for showing :).
