    Another UFO ready for the quilter. This is really a special quilt started in 1998 and finished 2 days ago. Sue and Sam are handstitched. It is made from fabrics from clothing I made my children, from their Aunt, Grandpa, Grandma, Uncle, DH and me.

    Terry this quilt is priceless. I hope that you put a label on the back with name date. Some sew a pocket behind the label where some of the history can be written. You could take pictures and make notes as to the fabric used.
    This is so special. Full of memories.

    I really love "story quilts". The ones with a family history. This is a lovely memory.

    I like that you recycled clothing to make this fun memory quilt. I remember some of my childhood dresses because of a quilt my mama made from a collection of scraps. I believe there were curtain scraps as well in the quilt. Studying the quilt always gave me warm fuzzy feelings.
