Recycled Clothes Quilt

I'm currently working on a commission for a friend, who wants a quilt made from her 7-year-old's clothing.  The saved treasures also included a crib sheet, and child's chair cover.   I've spent a few weeks (off & on) taking things apart to be able to cut the fabric into usable pieces.
These are some of the shirts, cut apart into fronts and backs. 
Here are some of the other pieces - some cotton knits, flannels, and part of the chair cover, which yielded a surprising amount of fabric.
 And some of the cut pieces, ready to be sewn into blocks.  Stay tuned to see how this evolves!
