A long time ago I made myself a crazy looking quilt. While it was really cozy, it is too old, so recently I bought a new one. The woman who I bought it from created patchwork, which really holds great. I will take a couple photos and upload it here.
my sister died 4 years ago and my mom died 3 years ago, with in a year apart. my dad died 18 years ago. I would love to make a quilt out of their clothes. But have never done a quilt before. is there an easy pattern for someone that has never made a quilt before?
I recommend going to your local quilt store and asking their advice. Take the materials you want to work with and show them...they would be a great resource for you. You could even enroll in a class and get their guidance along the way.
I am not a quilter but my daughter is and one thing I have learned while watching her grow as a quilter is that you want to practice on something else first. Don't cut into your one of a kind fabric until you are confident the pattern, style, etc. is exactly what you want. You only get one shot and you would be heartbroken if you didn't LOVE the final product.
What a wonderful heirloom to be treasured. The perfect way to honor your family. Good luck with your quilting adventure. Please share your finished project...we would love to see it.
