Quilt Process (a commissioned quilt)
So, I'm breaking a quilt rule. And that is not to start another project until the last one is finished. But I think I have a good reason. I have been asked to make a quilt for one of my friends (actually for her MIL). So I have been given the task of cutting up baby clothes from the 80's to make into a quilt. I had to think about it for a while, and went into my favorites on flickr to find some inspiration. The inspiration comes from this quilt and this quilt.
So I have been cutting up the clothes into 5 inch squares and will mix it up with white squares for the front. The back I am planning to make out of white flannel with a few of the favorite pieces from the clothes placed strategically. Thinking I will quilt it with straight lines (and try out my walking foot).
A terrible photo of my idea ... I wanted to see if it would look okay and also approximately how large the quilt would be. My friend would like a fairly large quilt ... I think it will be a lap size.
