Adorable, but maybe impractical.
A friend came to visit today. Dina brought 2 quilts that she wanted to show me.
I couldn't wait and I wasn't disappointed.
One of them was a chuppah that her Aunt made for her wedding. It was waaaay too big to photograph. Her Aunt sent out squares of fabric to friends and family and they personalized them. That has been done before, but the unique part was that the friends and famed out a sheet of paper with the whys and how they made their blocks. Dina's Aunt made it into a book. That was very nice.
But the best quilt was this:
Those are all things worn by her daughter, Miriam - dresses, hats, bibs, onesies and even booties.
Some cut in half and stitched down.

|And this adorable child in it.|
And look at some of the other blocks:
I think it's a great keepsake.
But... it has not been used or washed. Practical?
What do you think?
