Panda Quilt from Labels!

Quilter Jill Buckley sent me this photo of a quilt called "Made in China" by Anita Payne of Stratford, Ontario. I hope you can see in this photo that the panda is made completely from labels! Isn't this amazing? Thanks, Jill.

This quilt was made by Lisa Thompson's sister. Here's what Lisa wrote:
"This is my sister's quilt. She asked me and other family members for labels from our clothes. She was known to cut a label out while someone was still wearing the shirt it came from! She also went to thrift stores on days they sold clothes by the pound and bought things just for the labels."
