From the Container To The Closet

Each winter, I have an Amish woman who hand quilts my quilt tops. We have never met and work entirely in writing through the mail. It’s great for both of us. She wants the work, I want to transform fabric into quilts.

As the continuation of this Container Project, I am going to document the transformation of my own personal clothing into a quilt for my bed that I will have Nettie hand quilt.

I have a real problem- a really huge closet that holds an enormous amount of clothing. I swore when I moved here, I would remove two articles for each one I bought. That never happened and now it’s gotten even worse. As I am more and more comfortable with making quilts out of clothing, I am less likely to give up anything, not for the fear that I might wear it again but that I might need it for a project!

Let the fun begin! Here is the L shaped closet:

      That is a beautiful closet. I had no idea, but am very impressed. It certainly puts my four shelves and one hanging bar to shame. I think you may even have more clothes than Sarah in there. =)
