Mixed Messages

Sue Allen

Just a bit of fun. I’ve collected clothing labels for several years. In spare moments I sewed them on to a rectangle or square. (Same width or double plus seam allowance) They all fitted together as planned to make a 1.5m x 1.1m lap quilt.

Lesson learned - It takes a lot of labels to make much progress, hence the small size.

I called it Mixed Messages. It’s a comment on the random words of the labels but also referring to the world of fashion and the behind the scenes conditions of production.

I used some men’s shirts for borders and incorporated some of the features, like the button up front. There's some room left for some Big Names when I find them.
