Quilt of the Month – – March 2014

 

 

Here is a GREAT way to keep memories alive .  .  .  .  .  .  a memory quilt.  This just one example of a memory quilt made from T-shirts.  They can be made from T-shirts, photos, other types of clothing, or any combination of these.

 

This is a T-shirt quilt made by one of our newer clients in a class Julie taught at The Quilt Cupboard in 2013.  Cynthia said she made it for a man who liked “music” and loved to read.  She used 31 T-shirts cut to be 14″ squares finished.  She also had 4 blocks of music fabric also cut to be 14″ squares when finished. The backing is made from the most absolutely beautiful “book” fabric.

 

The quilt measures a total of approx 70″ x 98″ and was quilted using a Square Meandering pattern from Patterns by Deb, with Steel Blue Omni thread.  The batting is Hobbs 80/20, which is 80% cotton and 20% polyester, that we prefer and provide.

 

Memory Quilts are wonderful gifts to have and lots of fun to make.
