Plaid shirts are practically my oldest son's year round uniform, which has led to some good natured teasing from the rest of his family. Being the affable fellow he is and in defense of his fashion sense, he smilingly declares, "Plaids are just Manly". All teasing aside, I happen to like using plaid shirts for patchwork projects, like this quilt for my son. Seeing that my plaid stash isn't waning any, plus the fact that said son loves to read, is it any surprise I came up with this project? LOL
newest serger was used to finish the raw edges (using only two threads - which I find so amazing), so that laundering the plaid cover won't make it fall apart. Especially important, as this son is one to regularly launder things.
