    I think that you have done an unbelievably co-ordinated quilt with an exact pattern, but done it with scraps. From a distance, you would swear that you purchased blue fabric, red fabric, yellow fabric, etc. to arrive at that perfect look. I would say that you have engineered perfection. Great heirloom quilt.

    What a treasure! I say that quilting is 'connection through creativity'.....and your quilt of memories is a wonderful example of that. Those who were blessed to have garments made from fabrics represented in the quilt will have a special time remembering this or that dress, shirt, or pj's. Love your cross-stitched label. Thanks for sharing.

    Love the quilt, and like you I love making a special label. It just seems to put that dot over the i! Cute, cute, cute!!!!!

    I see why this quilt has special meaning for you. It is padded with memories and wonderfully named. I was working on a quilt while going through breast cancer treatment when the planes hit the World Trade buildings on 9/11 and I felt the same about that quilt. You are a sensitive, imaginative quilter. Love your quilt.

    What a great quilt full of memories!!! We should all do something like that. The problem is with our family we shifted house and places so much over all those years and every time we cleaned out everything that wasn't used anymore, either too smal or just not suitable anymore, so there is really nothing left from when the children were young.... and of course I didn't know then that I eventually would become a quilter....

    The quilt is as beautiful as your story of how it came to be.
    Pat yourself on the back that is true heirloom quilt.
