Quilt Expo 2011 - Part 4 - A One of a Kind

This quilt is in a class all by itself.  It's not unusual for a grandma to make a quilt for her grand-baby, but this one has a twist.  The woman who made it saved her daughter's baby clothes and rather than cutting them up, she hand appliqued them intact!  The clothing is applied so that each item may be cut free and worn by her granddaughter.  And as baby grows up, she can see the images of her own Mama as a little girl. 

Kinda makes me all teary eyed, but in a good sort of way.  :)
