so excited

I have a friend who told me about this a long time ago and I haven't been able to get it out of my head, so I think this will be my next sewing project. It is called a memory quilt, what you do is gather your child's old clothes they no longer can wear, and cut squares, then piece them together to make a patch work layout, then you add batting, a back and tie it off, and viola all the cute clothes you have kept but have no use for is turned into a beautiful memory quilt.
Once I start Ill post pictures, if you are interested in doing this now go to this website: http://www.ehow.com/how_5176574_make-patchwork-quilt-baby-clothes.html
It seemed to have the simplistic instructions. Enjoy!
