I recently wrote about the memory quilts I've been working on. Well, I managed to finish piecing, basting and quilting both of those memory quilts this week. And I have to say - they came out exactly like I wanted them to.
This first one is for Diane, my father-in-law's youngest daughter:
And this one is for Sandra, his oldest daughter:
For both quilts, I cut strips of varying widths and then randomly sewed them together into strip sets. To make the top larger, I used some solid strips between each row.
The quilting is a soft, big meander.
The quilts are super soft. They both measure about 50" square. Both sisters-in-law are visiting this weekend so I plan on giving them the quilts then.
And I kept a few strips to make a little something for my sweetie too. I just haven't decided what that's going to be yet.
I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at A Quarter Inch from the Edge for TGIFF.
And these quilts are projects number 2 and 3 on my Q3 FAL list.
