baby keepsake quilt

i had the privilege of making a keepsake quilt out of a babies old clothes! it was difficult at first to decide how i was going to use such small clothes on a quilt, but this is what i came up with!
i was able to use some of the clothes as a full piece, which i think REALLY gives you a sense of how little that little man really was!
it was hard to cut up baby clothes... i guess that's why i haven't yet made my kids one. all of their clothes are in their keepsake bins waiting for a time when i can finally get myself to cut them.
i guess that's why it would be easier to get someone else to make it for you : )

i LOVE the free hand piecing in this one! my inspiration was a collage picture wall. i wanted each one to look like it was framed and important!

hope you like it!

P.S. i have a keepsake quilt pattern available in my etsy shop! it's not this exact pattern but it will give you the tips you need to get creating your own keepsake quilt!!

Sandra, that is so clever!! I have a bunch of T-shirts to make a quilt from. Have you ever done that?
