The GIANT Plaid Quilt

This quilt was commissioned by my boss for his mother.  It is made of his father's flannel shirts and will be a gift for his mother. This quilt is quite large, 80x96"(I think it's the largest I've quilted on my machine). The top is 10" squares (the shirts were HUGE! 3XL) set on point with red sashing.  It is backed with navy fleece to be extra cuddly, with a stripe of plaid squares pieced into it. I quilted it sparingly so the pockets would still be open, and went with straight lines either side of the lattice sashing to keep the masculine feel and to create a plaid-type design on the backing fleece.
