Memory Quilt

Fortunately for my baby boy, my auntie kept almost all of her son’s clothes from when he was a baby and toddler. That means my baby boy received lots of hand-me-downs for his wardrobe. Fortunately for me, my auntie kept almost all of her son’s clothes from when he was a baby and toddler. That means I was able to use some of those to make her a memory quilt for her recent (milestone) birthday. I raided the boxes and boxes of boy clothes, discarded the worn out, put away some for my boy, donated some, and got to cutting up the rest. The result is this quilt, a mish-mash of pieces of clothes and memories.
