    Default son's quilt made from recycled shirts

    I just finished this for my 15yo son.
    He picked the shirts he liked from Goodwill & this is what we came up with.
    It will fit his twin bed nicely.

    Now that is a very pretty quilt, and a very special one being made with recycled shirts. It is even more special that your son picked out the shirts. Good job!

    That turned out to be a gorgeous quilt. He had good taste in selecting the shirts. Just wondering, how many did he buy for it?
