Why Use Men’s Dress Shirts?

Men’s dress shirts‍ offer a ‌wide variety of colors,⁢ patterns, and ⁢textures that can be ​incorporated into quilt designs. Upcycling these shirts not only keeps them out of landfills but also adds sentimental value to‍ the quilt. Each shirt used can hold memories ‌of a⁣ loved one, an event, or ‍a special occasion.
