Memory Quilt

Sue wanted to honor her father by having a quilt made out of his old suits.  Her friend Brenda did a wonderful job piecing a quilt top that was very pleasing–adding a floral print that softened the look.  I recently finished quilting it.   It’s a large bed sized quilt.

ImageI quilted feathers in the “suit” areas to soften and unify the different wools.

ImageIn the floral print, I used straight lines to accent the triangle shape and added some freehand leaves and curls.Image

In the center, I quilted a feathered wreath.ImageOn the other side, it’s easier to see the border design.  The solid lime green backing fabric really shows off the quilting.

ImageThis is one of the those quilts that was really an honor to quilt.  I love how it turned out.
