Quilt for a Friend

This is a quilt I created this quilt for my friend Nancy last Christmas. Her mom passed away and she wanted a quilt for herself and her brother made with fabric from some of her mom's shirts and tops. I created half-square triangles from background fabric and clothing. I set the blocks in a chain pattern and added appliqued oak leaves to the borders. My sister Carol quilted it and did a wonderful job. Nancy grew up in Louisiana and had many oak trees. Next I will be creating a version for Nancy - I hope to have that by the first of the year.
