Memory Quilts: Part 2

Here are pictures of two of the three finished Memory Quilts from my college friend's stash of her boys baby clothes. One is done in blues and whites, and the other in blues and reds. The third we're working on will be blues and greens - we're still trying to find the right combination of fabrics for the top.



In case you may not see at first glance, if you look at some of the squares, the clothes were re-worked to enable a 'square' - the front of overalls do not lend to a 'square' and even less-so on sewing around gromets. The thickness of some clothes is also a hindrance, so the seems need to be ripped out and re-attached to provide a 'thinner' fabric. I cannot take any credit for these reworkings as it was all mom - she is truly talented with the projects and machine!

Can you see the collar parts she put together with backing of fabric from the body of the outfit?
