    Terrific quilt! Neat that your son was interested enough to help pick out the shirts. You've done an excellent job!

    That is really neat! I like the red plaid centers, and that lighter blue really jazzes it up. I'll bet he loves it.

    Your son picked them well and you made a beautiful quilt with them.

    WOW!! What a great quilt! It is hard to find masculine fabric and I would say you got it just right!! This is a great quilt! Recycling shirts is a great idea!

    Shirt quilts are are really nice to make when someone's dad or husband passes away. It's so comforting and priceless to the family. I've done two for my niece and nephew, and have the shirts now to do one for my sister and her girl.

    I need to do that.

    Great quilt. I'm taking apart some shirts so that I can try a shirt quilt. They look so nice and comfortable.
