Remember the baby quilt commission? I also created a throw size quilt (58â€ x 70â€) as a wedding gift using more of her grandmotherâ€™s needlework and bit of my usual art quilting.
I cut apart tablecloths, napkins, pillowcases and placemats, sometimes cutting around holes or stains that I could not repair or clean.
With the addition of a polka a dot cotton/linen blend, I created 9 oversized improvisational quilt blocks.
The recipient couple likes hiking so I used cotton fabrics to create a small art quilt to add into the throw.
On the back is an organic cotton print which I also used on the binding. I quilted it with my usual square spiral using a walking foot.
I had so much fun making this quilt. Itâ€™s almost an adult eye-spy quilt as you look at all the tiny embroidery. Once washed and dried, it got the crinkly, well-loved quilt look I hope to see.
My client passed on comments from the recipient who was thrilled with the wedding gift. So were Fordâ€™s parents when they received the baby quilt. I am so grateful to have the opportunity to bring joy to this family.
