One of my best friends asked me if I would make her a quilt from her daughter's baby clothes. Her daughter is now 10 years old. She lives in Texas and I live in Michigan. I received a huge box of clothes and started the journey. After looking at patterns for several weeks, I finally found the perfect one. I started making blocks and after using all the clothes once I ended up with 35 blocks. I figured an even 40 would give me close to a twin size quilt. I purchased fabric for the lattice, cornerstones, background and used greens from my own stash - so there is a little bit of me in it too. My friend and her daughter were thrilled.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments!  The pattern is from Kim Schaefer's "Flower Festival". Here is a link.

When I opened up the box of clothes I really didn't know what I had gotten myself into. It took me a couple of weeks to start cutting them up - they were TOO cute and perfect.

Very creative way to "recycle" and have a precious memory as well.
