This past week I completed the memory quilt that I posted recently. I delivered it yesterday to my friend/customer. She was so happy with it! I was so pleased to be able to do this custom quilt for her.
I have the pleasure of having my youngest son getting married later this year! He’s marrying a wonderful young woman whom I just adore.
As one of their wedding gifts, I have created the Heart Quilt pattern and making it for them. This is all made from 2″ squares and the final size will be 98″x120″. Yes, a very big quilt!
This will not be completed by the wedding date, however, it will be hanging on the wall and all attendees will be able to sign their name and add a message for the happy couple. There will be a table with a piece of fabric that I ironed onto freezer paper. The fabric will eventually be part of the back of the quilt along with a blessing that will be on the label reminding the happy couple that we are all supporting them through their journey of marriage.
Last week I finished the front of the Hankie/Memory Quilt that I have been working on.
My goal is to finish this by April 1. Today I prepared the remainder of the hankies (13) for the back, designed the back, and was able to put the center part together today.
Tomorrow I have a 16″ border to put on that will have other hankies on it as well. The final quilt is going to be around 100″x 100″.
I didn’t realize how big that is! It’s huge!!! When it is complete, I will have to be creative in how I lay it out for photos. I really don’t have enough room in my house to lay it flat. Yikes!! I don’t have to worry about that until next week!!
Have a wonderful day!!
