April 20 ~ Quilt of the Day
Save All Your Kisses by Leila, LeilaBadblood
Leila writes, “I made this quilt using linen and cotton from some of our old clothes and some thrifted ones. Kisses say it all by themselves! I love to use soft and comfortable, natural materials that have already had a life, in the way quilts were traditionally made. One can tell a story or rekindle memories just by studying the different patterns and shapes. My husband Andrew fell in love with this quilt and took it for himself. I’ve been taking commissions from friends to make quilts made with their own family’s clothing from past and present. It’s an exciting way to work.” Here’s the other side of this 35″ x 38″ quilt!
