So my sons about to be 3 months old and I'm going through all the clothes he no longer fits into and had an idea. Instead of throwing them out or selling them or just sticking the, away like I do with most stuff lol..I'm gonna cut out squares from all his onesies that have cute pictures or saying on them and make a quilt for him to look back on when he's older.

That's an awesome idea!

My husband is retiring from the military in December and I'm making a quilt with T-shirts from the different units he's been stationed at.

You need to put a backing on the stretchy onsie material though. I know that Pellon makes something I think it's called Tricot but I'm not sure. But you do need something to stabilize the stretch or it's not going to be fun sewing it.

I think t-shirt quilts (or onsie ones) are great. I did it with some of DH's work shirts. I have the kids' younger days shirts to do them too. Some day I might actually get around to it.
