Bits and Bobbins posts about these moving and extremely beautiful “passage quilts”, which are made from the clothing of those who have gone through a passage in life (death, birth, marriage, etc.). From the Passage Quilts website, these quilts:

“[begin] with the architecture of the clothing, these quilts are pieced without a predetermined pattern. this process provides the maker an opportunity to examine his or her life patterns.
the resulting quilts reflect the relationship of the maker to the materials, retain a sense of the body, and in the case of bereavement, carry the consoling essence of the beloved.”
