Memory Quilt – Complete! February 26, 2007

The quilt that started this venture is complete.  Memory Quilt - CompleteOne thing I hadn’t counted on was how utterly soft this quilt would turn out.  After the final washing, it is as soft as melted butter.  Probably because the clothing that the blocks came from had been washed umpteen times, but holy cow.

This is a Pineapple top.  If you look at the blocks on an angle, you’ll notice a pineapple shape.  I was skeptical at first, but they’re really there. This is my attempt at an Amish colored quilt.  I love all the bright colors, especially the way the black border offsets them. 

All 100% cotton. 

This piece is in the quilting stage.

Jeremy’s Quilt February 13, 2007

This was made at the same time as Karrie’s quilt, again for a co-worker of my husband’s.  They knew they were having a boy, and since Daddy is really big into Monster Trucks and such, I found the perfect material.

The front is a vibrant nine patch pattern consisting of 100% cotton, brushed flannel featuring a Monster Truck print alternating with red.  The backing is a pastel alphabet print, also in 100% cotton, brushed flannel.

Knotted with 100% cotton thread.

This was one of the ‘Freebie’ Quilts. I made it for a woman my husband works with who was having a baby. Since they didn’t find out the sex beforehand, I went with the traditional pink and blue.

All of the fabric used in this quilt was 100% cotton, brushed flannel.  I used a vibrant stripe in primary colors for the back since babies love bright colors.  The front used a pastel nine patch pattern. 

Knotted with 100% cotton thread.

They ended up having a baby girl, by the way. I’m told the baby sleeps with this every night.

A Bit About Me And What I Do February 13, 2007

I make quilts.  That’s pretty obvious, isn’t it?  It used to be, I made them pretty much only for special occasions – i.e. weddings and babies.  Like most ‘Hobby Quilters.’ 

Until…

One fine autumn day, a friend of the family approached me about making a ‘Memory Quilt’ for her from her recently departed parent’s clothes.  Not only that, she wanted to pay me! 

Well.  How about that? 

This is the, to date, result of that conversation.

Memory Quilt Number One

And that is how Mrs. Quilt was born. 

The goal is to use this blog as a showcase for my work.  Unless otherwise noted, they are for sale.  Email me to discuss.  I will also take custom orders.  Email me to discuss that, too.
