Heidi's Quilt

A new crazy baby clothes quilt is underway, but this one's a little different. Heidi asked me to incorporate her wedding dress in with her daughter's baby clothes. What an idea, huh?

Here's the stack of cut-up clothes

The first square

And here are about six squares laid out together on the bed. The ducks just kill me every time. So incredibly cute...especially with an umbrella.

Here the squares are trimmed and sewed together.

A "needle" is an arm's length of thread, threaded through a needle, folded in half and knotted. It yields about 7" of stitching. I went through 208 needles this weekend and had to tape my index finger from all the damage. It was totally worth it.

Aaaand, we're done:
