A woman and her father came to me last summer requesting that I make some small art quilts out of their mother/wife’s clothing. She had passed away the previous year. They looked at my work and decided on a piece that they really liked, Black/White with Orange. We agreed that I would make three pieces, one for the daughter, one for the father and one for the mom’s best friend.
When they dropped off the bag of clothing and that’s when I said to myself, “What have I gotten myself into?”Here’s a picture of the clothes – jeans, khakis, eyelet lace skirts, t-shirts with glitzy designs, and vests with lots of seams. This was going to really be a challenge!
So stay tuned. I will share with you in a series of blog posts how I went about this project and the final results.
Oh, by the way, much to my delight, the clients absolutely loved the final pieces!
