A professional longarm machine quilter for hire and some of the work I've done.
I had a lady request that I make a quilt for her. The lady is loosing her hair in clumps due to an illness. She plans to shave it all off instead of waiting for it to fall out a little at a time. Her hair is black and about 4 or 5 inches long.
She wants her hair put into the quilt in some way. I’ve always been able to put almost anything into a quilt but this one really has me stumped! I need suggestions!
I had suggested the hair be encased in plastic which I could then sew like it was just a different type of fabric. She doesn’t like the idea of the plastic.
I suggested the hair be glued to fabric then sewed into the quilt. She doesn’t mind this. I’m not sure what type of glue to use that will be washable.
She wants a traditional quilt pattern with very little visible motion in the design. The size is going to be a queen. It will hang on a wall with the length side to side instead of top to bottom.
Does anyone have any suggestions for putting her hair into the quilt????
