OMG Goal: Ginny's Memory Quilt

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 :)

Trimming the blocks square

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.
