    I need to know of a pattern to make a qult out of baby clothes and small children's. They are my grandsons clothes and my daughter wants a wall hanging made out of them. Cotton and knit fabrics. Appreciate any help.

    My DIL made a Sun Bonnet Sue and Fisherman Fred out of her siblings clothes for the Mother. It was so cute.

    I made a Harley Davidson quilt for my son using all his T-shirts, his wife's T's, my granddaughter's T's and little Harley pocketbook...etc..
    and filled in with pictures that I downloaded.
    I realize that baby clothes are so much cuter and softer but the idea would be the same.
    For smaller things, I appliqued them on blocks to fit the area. I used all that I could get my hands on to fill in.
    I got the pattern from "TOO COOL T-shirt" book by Andrea T. Funk.

    Attached is a picture of my quilt, you must have a good imagination to replace the Harley shirts with you grandbaby's things but the idea is there.

    Good luck.....MJ in NJ

    use your imaginations to replace these Harley shirts with adorable baby clothes.....you might even make a block or two from you daughter's maternity clothes !!!!!!!
