One of my favourite reasons to quilt is to create a useful item from cherished clothing. From my volunteer work at local schools teaching the students how to quilt (this year's quilts are here and here), I was approached by a Mom to make a double-bed sized quilt for her.
There is a large number of outfits on this quilt, and I tried to have as many cute bits as I could :)

August's quilting technique was English Paper Piecing (EPP), a method I was skeptical to try at first.
