A Memory Quilt

About a month ago I was hired to make a Memory Quilt for a lady. It was my first one and I thoroughly enjoyed doing it. It was not as much work as I thought it would be, but I also had some help for my Mom. She does not sew at all but she helped me with laying the squares out, which was a BIG help. Here is a picture of the woman's clothes. Her sister hired me to do make it. The lady had died of cancer this summer, so this was very special!!
Here is the finished quilt. Every square was cut from her clothes.
Her favorite colors were tan and Kelly green, so I made the backing tan and I used green bias tape and thread for the ties and trim.

Since the woman I was making it for was giving it to her Mother for Christmas I also made her a small wall hanging for her to keep. The buttons also came from one of her shirts.


I really enjoyed making this and look forward to making another one.
