What are you most proud of? The client called me Christmas morning to tell me that her niece was in tears! She loved the quilt!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time! Each costume has special requirements.

Love the Dancer's Memory quilt. I would love to make one of these with my daughter's dance costumes. I've saved them all since she started dancing at age 2. She is now going to be 31 and has been blessed with 3 lovely boys. Time to move on with them. Chances of her having a girl are very, very slim.

I need to do one with cheerleading uniforms. Any suggestions?

Take them apart, and get down to one layer of fabric. Usually the material is pretty substantial, but if it is too thick it will be difficult to sew through! Ball point needles are great for sewing any stretchy knit fabrics, and they will help you so much here as well!

How big are the squares? What material was used to sew costumes onto and what kind of backing did you use?

01/02/2016 Flag

I made the squares about 12" wide. I like to work with flannel, so I used flannel for the background squares.
