Hmmm...I am thinking about making a quilt with some old dearly beloved clothing but I want to have it still look like clothing and not cut it up into pieces...does that make any sense??  I mean I want to use a jacket and pants and have them still look like a jacket and pants, as well as incorporating other fabric/blocks into the quilt.  Has anyone ever done or seen this???  I mean I guess I can just applique them to a big piece of fabric (I only have to use the front I guess)...but not sure what my best course of action would be.  Your thoughts are appreciated.

If you are working on (or thinking about starting) a postage stamp quilt with 1.5" squares, I have scraps and squares to give away.  PM me if you're interested.

There are a couple of ways you could go about this.  Yes, my first thought is also just applique them to a peice of fabric and maybe do some echo quilting around them.  But you could also make mini-versions out of the fabric.  Turn some fabric from your jeans into a mini pair of jeans.  Alternately, you could deconstruct the jacket or pants (ripping it apart at the seams) and just sew the material flat, but keeping the details intact (seaming, buttons, pockets)... and do like a crazy quilt where part of the sleeve overlaps part of the jeans and all the parts are just mixed up.  It all depends on what you're looking for as the end result.  Sketch out some designs and see what you like best.
