I haven’t written a blog post for quite a while. I’ve been super busy getting ready for – and taping! – my new Craftsy class! It should be online within a few weeks. I’ll be sure to tell you more about it soon, and I’ll have a free class giveaway, too!
But, in the meantime, I thought I would share this little quilt with you. Anyone can make a memory quilt like this!
Three of the blocks were obviously made by Annie, who was probably about 3 or 4 years old at the time. The clown applique block was from a book of applique which I used to make many bibs and t-shirts for the kids. It is fused, and not even stitched around the edges. My Mom put it together and did some very simple machine quilting.
Let’s look at those three “original” blocks!
I have no idea if that is a swimming pool, or a yard, or… next to the house.
This is obviously a Christmas tree. What I like best is that the blond, green-eyed girl has white teeth painted in her red smile!
And here we have a pretty detailed bicycle, although I have no idea what those other objects are!
So folks, don’t always worry about coordinating fabrics, or consistent block sizes, or workmanship. While this quilt will never win any contests, it is still most decidedly a treasure!
