Get Yourself an Outfit...





Notice a trend in these photos? It's not enough that I love making quilts. I apparently am compelled to carry the passion for quilts into all phases of my life. In an "oops, I did it again" moment, I went shopping for clothing and brought home yet another garment, shown above, that looks like a quilt. I'm drawn to them. Especially if they're on sale!




A quick inventory of the closet revealed this somewhat disturbing truth. It seems that I often dress like a quilt. It happened quite gradually, and yet these four ready-to-wear garments are just the tip of the iceberg. There's more. Tops, jackets, even purses Lots more!



My consciousness of this trend was first raised when I wore the Crazy Quilt vest below, and people asked me if I'd made it. I gave the standard quilter's answer of "No, but I could have."




It all puts me in mind of the parody of the song titled "The Cowboy's Lament", that starts out "As I walked out in the streets of Laredo....". My version goes like this, to that tune:


I can see by your outfit that you are a quilter.

You can see by my outfit that I am a quilter, too.

We can see by our outfits that we are all quilters.

Get yourself an outfit and be a quilter, too!
