"I bought 19 men's plaid shirts at the thrift-store and made this great upcycled quilt. This is also a great idea for a memory quilt made from the shirts of a loved one. It is beginner-friendly and a great way to recycle clothing. You can purchase shirts from the thrift store for under $4 each. This tutorial gives you step-by-step instructions to make this great quilt. It goes together very quickly and turns out so cute. Happy quilting!"
