    3 of my grandchildren go to a a Catholic school in Federal Way WA. They have a major fund raiser in the Spring. Last year I started a quilt at DD request to be used in a raffle. My mom died in the middle of this quilt, so I only put together a lap size last year for raffle. With what was made last year and what I added this year I have a Queen Size quilt. The plaid and some whites are from the girls uniforms. Grays, tans & blacks from boys uniforms. yes I had to rip them apart. That was a major job. I've added a few fabrics, bordered with red. I've named this quilt "St. Vincent's stars" Just found dark blue with red stars outlined in white for back.

    what a great idea to repurpose old clothing and a salute to both the school and the children who attended it. This brings what to do with the old uniforms to a whole new level. You still cover them but with a blanket of love.
