Memory Project - Finish 3
Sorry I'm running late! Was out with friends and had SUCH a good time!
Here is my most recent finish: a memory quilt for a friend's father.
You have to appreciate that I stared at the piles of clothes for weeks because I had no idea how to put it together and make it work. The colors were daunting - I still have a bag of black left over. It's made out of polyester tops, polar fleeces, night gowns, sweaters, robes, and blue jeans. All different weights and textures. It's also so puffy - I used Quilter's Dream Poly. I'm quite proud of the sashing (made out of a fleecy robe) and denim border (it's all flat!).
Thank you to my sister Lorna for holding up the quilts. This is my favorite pic - it's a weird game of hide & seek with her dog!
