This is my favourite quilt - The Manly Quilt - which I made for my oldest teen aged son. It's a memory quilt of sorts because it is made mostly from shirts he wore growing up. We look at the different plaids and each one has a story, such as the one he wore in kindergarten and tore... or the one he wore in first grade and stained with paint. *By the way, he's still hard on his clothes! (insert an eye roll here... LOL).
The very best part of making this for my son was having him say how much he loves it. It is a permanent fixture on his bed. Oh, and the name for this quilt? He named it. To him, plaid is just manly.
