Our Possum Town Quilter's recently took on the task of making 3 quilts from used clothing.
If I have the story right, three sisters lost their mother in an automobile accident; so their great aunt raised them. Now the great aunt passed away and these are her clothes. Another relative ask us to make a quilt for each of the young girls using the great aunt's clothes.
We cut up blouses, skirts, dresses, and house coats. Using the String Quilt idea we made this one using blacks & whites & reds with the yellow down the center of each block.
We used the "Stack A Posie" idea to make this next quilt.
And then we used the "Tossed Nine Patch" idea for the third quilt.
This is the back to the "Tossed Nine Patch."
