This quilt is made up of the clothing worn in the first couple years of Grace's life. Her mom Melanie and I went to school together and we sang in Show Choir together.
This is the 2nd quilt made of baby clothes I have ever made. The FIRST one, (Brady's Baby Quilt) was made entirely of BOYS clothing and blankets. The boys clothing was a bit easier, since it didn't have as many small parts ;c) I wanted to conserve as many as the little logos and embellishments from these clothes as I could. This meant that I had to take the seam ripper and remove stuff, and then REapply it on the block before sewing it into the quilt.
I still enjoyed every minute of this quilt!! T-shirt quilts are my favorite because they are like a puzzle. So when I get a chance to make these quilts out of baby clothes, the puzzle pieces are SMALLER, and more challenging/FUN.
this is all the pieces, fused and cut, and the graph paper. . ready for the machine!!!
Pretty zig-zag backing!
awww, little quilt bundle of happiness!!!
Finished quilt - on a sunny, albeit very muddy, cold day ;c)
