Memories - a Custom Quilt

Suzanne and I are now doing Quilting Wishes together! A client requested a quilt made up of her daughter's outgrown clothing - a memory quilt.

Lots of cute little teeshirts, dresses, pants and hats became this sweet baby sized quilt, which will hang on the end of the little lady's new big bed. (Dimensions: approximately 38" x 44")

The sashing, borders and backing are all Connecting Threads fabrics - great prices, quality and customer service! The backing is Trendy Ogee in Dark Strawberry, from their Hampton Hues collection, and the peachy pink border is Quilter's Candy Prints, Swirls in Tea Rose.

It's quilted with a walking foot, double straight lines forming a grid and the binding is machine stitched. This was sure a fun thing to work on!
