    I made this quilt for my daughter and gave it to her on Mother's Day. I used clothing from her Grandparents, who are gone now, as well as fabric from old aprons that belonged to her great grandmothers. Also is fabric from clothes from her kids, her Dad, me and some from her. It was a challenge with all the different fabric types! I hand tied this one.

    beachy, that is such a nice (treasure), gift! so many memories in it.
    I just melt, when ppl say they have made things from family clothing.
    Sometimes, I wear hubby's shirts just to feel close to him. :D
