....Another memory quilt. It was commissioned by a lady that I clean house for.
(Before I forget, we need 20 more blocks for our Quilting for Kids project...click here...it's really easy this time!!!!!)
She had all these shirts from her "hay days." She traveled the world and got a Hard Rock Cafe T-shirt wherever she went and there was a Hard Rock.
So, here it is! All put together.
What's really cool about this quilt is the back.
She asked if I could use her old denim shirts that she used to wear around that time. You remember when everyone was wearing denim shirts?
Anyway, most of these are shirts, but the most interesting thing is that there is a pair of old jeans cut in there.
These were from her early years. These jeans went to Woodstock!
She had fish patches sewn onto the butt, a few mushrooms and a goofy. Along the seam on the side of the pants she had little star studs. They were so tiny....she told me, "Don't laugh! I used to fit in these!"
As I was quilting it, I placed a piece of washi tape wherever there was a star stud or patch on the back that I didn't want to go over.
It worked pretty well!
I can't wait to give it to her and know she'll love it.
