    Another work in progress. I saved my childrens patterns from the clothes I made them years ago. My baby is 30 years old now. I enlarged the clothes pattern design from the back of the pattern envelope, transfered it to the linen (that my mom gave me from her stash) My quilt buddy gave me the green fabric, the burgundy was mine. I used approx. 25 skeins of floss, the backing is a recycled devet cover. This quilt will hang off the sides of a queen size bed nearly to the floor. I have had to put it aside for a while, it is really heavy and hard to manage. More pics when I'm finished.

    It's lovely! What a fantastic idea you had. Wish I had thought of it 32 years ago. Unfortunately, I got rid of most of the patterns as the girls grew up and moved out of the house.

    Terrific idea! Wish I had thought of it. I started in 1955 making my daughters clothes, and then made clothing for both granddaughters.
