Patchwork Quilt

I made this patchwork quilt for my cousin as a Christmas present from his girlfriend. I cut out the squares from his Granddad's shirts who sadly passed away last year. I can honestly say I enjoyed making it so much and I now want to make one for myself with some cute floral fabric. I tried to keep as many quirky features in as I could like the shirt pockets and button stands. I sewed on the knitted poppy as my cousin's Granddad sold them after a career in the army. Such a lovely keepsake and something to cuddle when you are really missing that person.
