Quilt made of dresses

This quilt is from a lady named Gabriela. It was made by her mother, who I got to meet when they came to drop off her quilt. We had a language barrier (she is from Mexico), but I could tell that she had a lovely warmth. She spent years as a garment-maker, and she made this quilt for Gabriela out of a bunch of Gabriela's old dresses. Lovely idea!

The slicky fabric of these dresses was a little tricky to get mounted on my frame, but once I got it tacked down, it was off to the races. Gabriela picked an edge-to-edge design of loops and hearts, which worked well with this piece - filled with love!
