That's a great idea! It looks soooooo comfy...warm but cool, if you know what I mean. (yes, I turn my pillow in the middle of the night to get the cold side on my face). I love it. I definitely want to try this. Your sister is very lucky!

That's a pretty cool idea....getting a bunch of old oxfords from the thrift store. It turned out cute!

Thanks so much for posting this! Smiley

I have now started saving old shirts!

About how many did you need to make this?

Sorry for taking forever to respond-  I would say I used about 12 shirts, though some were extra-large and others small.  My thrift shop has a "bag day" where a bag is five bucks, so this quilt was basically made from a brown-paper-bag's worth of shirts!

I tacked down the corners by hand using embroidery floss- the quilt is about four years old now and the stuffing has not bunched, so I don't think actual quilting was necessary, though it may have looked nicer.

thanks for all the compliments! the sister reports that sometimes it is actually too hot, but that doesen't seem to stop her from using it every night-

I absolutely love it!  Good job!!! I am collecting plaid men's shirts from thrifty stores and I am going to back it with a large scale floral sheet for contrast!
