These are simple 8 x8 inch squares I cut from garments that the family no longerwears. ( I have a previous post regarding this.) The idea was not to make this some perfect piece of art. I want to to see what I can do with what I have on hand. It is not about color coordinating or anything like that. Just using what I have…when I have it (i.e. recycled clothes)
I pieced together all the squares I had.
I could add fabric I already have on hand but, I am going to wait until I have more
garments to recycle. I will eventually do some hand stitching and backing
for the quilt once I feel it is large enough to be a complete quilt.
When I look at each piece of fabric I remember each family member
wearing it. This quilt,, although simple, will hold stories and memories….
I like that.
