What materials did you use? My Mom passes away 2013 & I used Mom's T-shirt & Sweatshirt, fabrics from my children's & grandkids vests, jackets, pants, shirts, robes, quilts & the fabrics Mom would like. She was born on St Patrick's Day, March 17th & the fabrics Shamrocks & Kiss me-I'm Irish on the backing. on

What advice would you give someone starting this project? I use the muslin with the T-shirt pattern. on

I make this quilt for Dad. My husband did art & printed the t-shirts & sweatshirts. I like the 50th Anniversary, Golde's Reunion, Christmas Grandkids & Great-Grandkids & Rhododendron Festivals. Dad is overwhelmed!

What a beautiful quilt full of special memories, and made by a daughter with a very beautiful heart. You have done Mum proud and given Dad a quilt he can use to keep warm in his own special memories. Well done! :-)
