Upcycled Clothing Quilts, Memories, and Love!

My first love of sewing really was in quilting and not just regular quilting but upcycled clothing quilting! 

I started when I was 12 by using an old airplane blanket and a hippie skirt. Of course, back then I had no idea the term was "up cycling" or that it would be such a intricate part of my life as an adult. I just used what I had and I loved it!

This is a quilt that I made several years ago from some old clothing and textiles and I'm so happy that it had survived our 6 moves since making it!

Using old clothing to quilt with was really the earliest form of quilting and I really love seeing what folks do with this craft!

More quilt pictures to come!!
