I'm joining Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival!
When my sister passed away, I offered to make two memory quilts from her clothing for her two children. My mom came out with the bags of clothing, and we worked together for a week to finish these two quilts.
The clothing included many different kinds of fabrics, from heavy sweaters to cotton knit tops to sweat pants. So we decided to cut large squares and sash them in order to preserve the patterns of each piece of clothing.
We included a photo transfer or two, plus three favorite Bible verses of my sister. The backing was a soft ivory fleece; there was no need for batting, as the tops were plenty heavy already! I machine quilted straight lines on the sashing.
