Lunden's Memory Quilt {A Finish}


When a friend contacted me asking if I could make a memory quilt for her dear friend whose child had recently passed away from of course I accepted such an honor. 


I was thrilled to find the perfect border fabrics on the shop shelves, it was as if it were meant to be.
If you've been reading my blog for very long you already know that I'm using the Too Cool T-shirt Quilt method for the cutting and piecing of these quilts. 

 Normally I don't add any stabilizer to the blocks when I do t-shirt quilts, but in this collection of clothing items were a few pieces that really needed to be stabilized. One was a satin that was just raveled too much with it, another was a seersucker fabric that seemed to stretch when you looked at it, and last was a thin eyelet fabric that was especially thin and needed a little more weight to stand up to being quilted and loved. 



For the blocks I choose to keep the little hat and the bib whole using pieces from other items as the background piece for these applique blocks. Then there were several pockets, bows, embroidery designs, and special tags that I fussy cut to create adorable and meaningful blocks.



When it came to quilting the clothing blocks I choose to use a combination of butterflies and flowers intermixed among continuous swirls, it all seemed sweet and perfect for a little girl's memory quilt.





 Love the swirls and paisley's for the border design.




 On every label I offer space for the giver to add a special note to the recipient.
One can never fail with Scripture.



 Such a sweet quilt.
