Playclothes Quilt - done

I was a total tomboy - played tackle football with the neighborhood boys, climbed trees, rode my bike around a dirt track, played Raiders of the Lost Ark in the creek behind my house.  I liked dolls and Barbies, too, but when I needed to PLAY, I played like a boy.

This quilt reminds me of a shirt that one of my friends would have worn to play outside.  Remember - you had playclothes and you had good clothes and the two shalt never be confused.  I can see it now - a tow-headed boy with cut-off jeans on his dirt bike screaming down the street, ready for a new adventure...

  1. I love it! The quilting is great. Copying that next time ....

    All of my clothes are divided into three categories: work clothes, play clothes and cleaning clothes. I hate work clothes.

  2. My clothes are separated into 2 categories - clothes and shoes. I need more categories. Perhaps party, adventure and romance would be good categories to start...

  4. This is a great quilt and a fun name! I can just see the shirt myself. I became a follower and am looking forward to quilting with you in the Bee. I wanted to reply to your message but you have your blogger set as no/reply. I didn't know if you realized that or not. Anywho, thanks for stopping by my blog and I have enjoyed a little tour of yours!

  5. Ah, we would've been great friends as kids! Plum fights in the orchards turned the striped cloths into one's with dots too. ;^) Love the quilt... it's very playful and simplistic in that, Happy Childhood, sort of way.

  7. Andie, this is truely a beautiful quilt. Less is more and it works! Less prints and a simple pattern enhanced by closely spaced quilt lines... Great balance and sensibility!
