What to do with Dad’s plaids
My father passed away (very expected) and since my folks live near the Pendelton Woolen Mills outlet store he had quite the collection of woolen plaid shirts in many different colors, and many different weights. He was also much smaller frame than most of his descendents, so I don’t think the grandsons will be able to fit into many of these shirts. However, I was thinking of perhaps sewing some kind of memory quilt or something out of them – and I figure this is the board for suggestions of what to do!
The plaids are all different, but since I am currently at my folks house near the store, getting more plain wool to eek them out and quiet them down is possible. There are eight grandkids, so I don’t want to make too big of a production item, as I would need to make eight of them to keep peace in the family – and I would like t o perhaps have it done by early June when the ashes will be interred. Several of the grankids are still in college, so it needs to be quite portable as well.
