    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Your son's quilt is absolutely awesome! You did a great job on it, and so did he picking out shirts! I love the colors and the design! Great job! Great duo!

    Very pretty quilt! I so wish I had kept my late DH's shirts to make a quilt!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Your DS will love the quilt, however, he will also remember the time spent with his DM and his part in chosing fabrics! Well done!

    You did a really nice job with the materials that you gathered from the old shirts. Finished project looks great.

    I love it! Great job, down to the meandering and the pieced binding. Question for you, those look to be about 2 inch finished logs, am I correct? Looking to make one myself, and I like the size of block you have.
