If I am remembering the story correctly, the father of one of Michael's coworkers passed away and she asked him to make 3 memory quilts for her out her father's clothes. So we've got t-shirts, dress shirts, denim shirts, swim trunks and even socks. I think there is a pair of pajama bottoms in there too, but I'm only guessing on those. I initially thought boxers, but there's too much fabric for just boxers.One of the swim trunks with pocket intact.
All of the quilts use many of the same blocks, but different fabrics. There's a snails trail in all, a tulip block, churn dash and spinning star to mention a few.
Yes, socks. One pair per quilt. Oh yes, and handkerchiefs. See the green in the left side of the sock block?
The border on each is a velour, like maybe from a track suit.
