What materials did you use? I used multicolor flame fleece for the quilt back and white cotton fabric for the background. I just couldn't throw away all my hubby's old shorts (and yes, he usually picks his own fabrics!) so I cut them in half and made a quilt each for grampa and his oldest grandson.

What are you most proud of? Getting it done and giving all my grandkids quilts every now and then.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Do it out of love, thrift, and have FUN!

What a super idea! We don't really have the weather in England for wearing shorts very much (wish we did), but I think your idea of leaving the pockets in your grandson's quilt is brilliant! He can have all sorts of secrets now!
