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 :)
There are so many cute saying on these onesies!
This month I want to finish this quilt and deliver it to it's forever home, so I'm making it my OMG goal for the month. Check out all the other goals over at Elm Street Quilts.
Mary is a local quilting friend who loves to piece, but gets bogged down during quilting. These are 2 of the quilts I machine quited for her this spring :)
Working with local schools has been very fun and the students are pushing me to design ever more interesting layouts from simple subunits. Take a look at the third quilt I helped to make this year!
Memory quilts aren't always cute and cuddly, this t-shirt quilt is all about hard rock and good times!
A local Mom asked me to turn her children's baby outfits into a bed-sized quilt and I happily agreed!
A very sentimental Mom asked me to make a bed-sized quilt from her children's baby clothes, and this is going to be one beautiful memory quilt!
