Making quilts out of used clothing dates back to the very origins of quiltmaking. This project was designed to showcase some very special outfits worn by a baby girl, but could just as easily be made using women’s, men’s or boys’ wear. The garment fabrics are featured as quarter-circle patches appliquéd onto cotton background squares and the curved seams are embellished with lace, ruffles, and trim.
“For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be”. ~ Psalm 139:13-16
