    Another set of memory quilts

    I made two memory quilts for a mother and daughter, from their husband/dad's shirts. He was a hunter so they liked to have a dear on the back. The dear were made out of his pants and jeans.
    I did not know this family before, they found me by my website. How cool is that!

        Your website looks really good, Lenie. Where do you find all your recycled fabrics? I wish I could read Norwegian so I could read what you've written.

          Thanks! Norwegian would not help either, Rebecca, haha, you need to learn Dutch . Most of the stuff I made from recycled fabrics was commissioned, so I got the fabrics from the clients. For the rest, some is from my own family's closet, some is given to me, some I find at markets.

            @Rebecca when you click the right mouseclick you have a translation from Dutch to English. As for recycled fabric all you have to do is tell some of your friends you collect clothes and at once you get so many you have to cancel some. Most of my projects are from recycled clothes.

              You did a great job on these, Lenie. I love the idea of using the deer.

                    Ok Lenie, I have looked at the deer, I've seen you zigzagged it. Looks very good!
