Memorial quilt

 One of my oldest friends lost her dad a month ago. I told her to keep a few of his shirts and I would make them into a quilt.  The shirts were flannel, which surprised me a little and made me think on my feet, but I think it turned out pretty awesome in the end.
 A  simple pattern to use the plaids.
 And I used every single inch I could eek out, even binding it with them.  It turned out really cuddly and heavy.
And she cried when she saw it.

Making quilts like this is the best really. It definitely makes being able to make them feel like a gift instead of just an expensive hobby.

I hope they use it all up!
