anyone make a quilt out of old clothes?
I have a friend who lost his mother a couple years ago and he still has a lot of her old clothes that he said he would like to turn into a quilt. He asked me if I would be willing to help him since he doesn't know how to sew and doesn't have a machine... I've never tackled anything like this before, but I know other people have. I never finish quilts that I start, but I think if I were doing it for someone else, I would be inspired to complete it. Have any of you done this? How did it go/turn out? I think it would be a fun project and be something that is really special to him... my only concerns would be if some of the blouses are made out of stretchy material and others are not... and what the best pattern for a quilt like this would be. Are there any books about this kind of thing?
