This quilt is for David, my oldest child. As you know I have a thing for memory quilts and can finally check another child off my list. Last year I made one for my youngest and because they shared a lot of the same baby clothes I couldn’t start on this one till that one was done. I am really happy with how it came out, and of course, it makes me kind of sad too. My baby is not a baby anymore, he is almost 12. It is amazing how the quickly the time goes by. I can vividly remember him in most of these outfits and find it hard to believe he was ever that small.
This quilt measures about 50” by 70” and the front is pieced with using a modified 9-patch block to accommodate the clothing. All the knit fabrics were backed using Pellon Shape Flex Fusible Interfacing, a must for these types of quilts. For the back I used denim. Not my first choice for backing but it really does suits the front. Besides I found a really nice light weight piece at Jo Ann’s so it really isn’t to bad. Also, I did some straight line quilting in off white so it would stand out on the plain backing.
Now, of course with another memory quilt done that means it is time to start the next one. This time I will be making one for my daughter. I have pulled out all her little dresses that my mother made her when she was a toddler. Thankfully they are all made of cotton so this one should be an easier one to put together.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and all your continued support. Leave me a comment and let me know what you think. I will be linking this project to some of these great Linky Parties.
