I have finally finished my youngest daughters quilt, sewn in memory of her Grandad.
I put four colour catchers in and hoped it would be enough.
This quilt has been six months in the making and a steep learning curve.
I loved to see it on the line dancing in the breeze.
|Every block tells a story.|
|It looks well on Abi's bed.|
|Love this Pippi block - reminds me of Abi!!!.|
|A very wonky house.|
|Love this butterfly made from Dad's Laura Ashley pillow case.|
|The heart of the quilt - LOVE.|
I brought a pile of Dad's shirts back with me in Feb, the red particularly provokes a memory as he was wearing this last May ( 2011) when he celebrated his 90th birthday.
The dress in the Pippi block was actually material I used to make a dress for Abi when she was a nipper, so something from her too.
Abi's favourite block is the log cabin, mine is the Pippi. I wonder what yours is?
Now to start big sis's Star memory quilt. Could be awhile.
Bye Ruth xo
