Old Clothes revamp

As we moved I kept lugging Tessa’s clothes with me.  At one point I realized that she was more than likely not going to really want the old pieces for her own kids, but could not bring myself to get rid of them.  So since she was old enough I gave her the  instructions to put together a quilt that she could eventually take to college and all the other stops along her journey.  Each block was cut from old pajamas and dresses, etc.  It was a simple square pattern surrounded by 4 strips.

To make the whole thing more cohesive she picked out a very graphic fabric that she used as filler blocks.  The result is fresh and modern.  Keep posted as she finishes it up.
