I love the way it turned out, the red is definitely a great addition.  Thank you for the inspiration, I'm getting ready to start a memory quilt with my brother's clothes and cammies.  I'm planning on doing a brick quilt though in the hopes that I might actually finish it.

I think this is the real reason people make quilts:  To keep memories.  It is like a monument to the person whose clothes you used.  It is wonderful.

What a lovely idea.  Wish I had done something like this for mum when dad died.  However, I did a knee throw in patchwork for when he was really ill, which he loved, so maybe this is just as good. 

I loved the design you have achieved and think the red brings out all the rest.  Well done it is a major achievement.  Good on you.

That's lovely! It looks really precise and "designed", which is impressive given the presumably somewhat random fabrics you had to work with. I think this is the best "shirt" quilt I've seen yet!

I love it!  I am currently cutting up some of my husbands shirts to save and make a quilt out of.  He is still with me, so it wouldn't be a memory quilt, but I wanted a quilt out of his shirts.  I had no idea what to expect something to look like made out of men's shirts, so this is very encouraging.  Love it.  Wonderful job and super kind of you.
