This was a challenge issued by the Costume Museum of Canada in Winnipeg sometime in the nineties, I think. We were to make a quilt from old clothes. I chose a taffeta cocktail dress from the sixties and one cotton dress. I also had some 36 inch wide fabric for a few blocks and the border. I threw in a bit of a leftover Hoffman floral fabric and sashed it with a modern tone on tone fabric.
I don't think of myself as a floral person but I do like this quilt and enjoyed the process of working in an improvisational way.
The backing is a poly cotton with tiny dots. Machine quilting roses is a wonderfully easy introduction to spontaneous free motion quilting. A treasure indeed!
