Recently, I was asked to create a special quilt, by a Mom who wanted a memory quilt to give her daughter, who is getting married soon. Over the years, she had saved all her daughters favourite dresses, jeans and baby clothes. After hearing the stories of how much she loved wearing the dresses, her jeans, which was extended with another pair to make them last longer as she grew. To a all the patches which was added, when they became too well loved and feeling how soft the fabric had become over time. I had to make this Quilt. (Her most special dress with animals on, was appliqued, all over the quilt.)
This dress was her all time favourite. It was the only one which was not modified. All the other dresses and clothes was saved. She will be able to use it for her own children one day. The only one which was used entirely for the quilt, was the one with the animals.
A patch from the jeans. It has green sparkly beads on, with beautiful embroidery.
Some of the blocks, the fabrics was all very different and unique.
The finished quilt. Which her Mom gave to her at her Bridal Shower. It gave me goosebumps, when her Mom showed me the video, when she received it and realised, it was her dresses!
The Family has a special saying, which was included on the label on the back of the quilt...
