Other projects seem to be pulling me away from the next border of my medallion quilt at the moment, in a good way of course and this baby quilt is one of them.
Where possible I fussy cut motifs or included cute details like pockets to make it a bit more interesting...
Pretty much every item was sentimental to his mum and being a mother myself I can really relate to this! I even had a bit of a tear in my eye when I cut into that first bonds suit and couldn't imagine going through the process of making one for my own little boy...even though I think it is a fabulous idea.
I think the hardest but most rewarding square to make was this car one. The car is a multi layered applique which was located on the baby suit's bottom - so I had to remove the elastic from it before cutting. She was adamant that this one had to be saved though so I found a way. :)
I hope I am given the honour of making more memory quilts for people in the future. They aren't the most "beautiful" or modern quilts but they are just so meaningful and full of love. Which is at the heart of quilting really, isn't it?
