I love creating!
A few years back I wanted to make a quilt but didn’t want to use anything from my fabric stash. I just wanted to do something a little different. If anyone knows me I don’t lack clothes in my closet. It doesn’t mean I wear the clothes, they are just there.
I pulled out a few pairs of corduroy pants, around 6 or 7 pairs, and started cutting. I had no idea what the finished quilt would look like or what size it would be. Once I had all the squares cut I placed them on my bed to start working on a pattern…for some reason I like to use a bed to get an idea whether I like the look or not. Now who said men don’t like quilts?
I don’t like to waste anything, so with the pockets I decided to make a second quilt. Yes these are actual pockets from the pants and they still function as pockets.
I am sure that my Scottish Grandmother would be so proud that I find a use for old clothes.
