Sweet Peas/Memory Quilts
I spent quite a bit of time during April writing about a memory quilt I was making.
When I shared the result with our Sweet Pea group, Debbie was very interested in how it had all come together.
She had been given some baby garments and asked to do something like this but was not sure how.
Once she saw that I had put fusible interfacing on the back of stretch knit fabric to give stability she was off and away.
I think she has been far more adventurous than me with her projects.
She has even sewn the remains of a soft favourite toy into the bottom row second from the right.
This quilt includes the original pieces Debbie was given.
They are for a little boy named, Patrick.
Note the inclusion of a pair of baby booties towards the top left.
Bottom right has a pocket with a favourite toy stuffed inside.
Patrick's Mum thought that some photos behind the poppers would add some interest.
I put the photos on to fabric and backed them with fusible webbing so that Debbie can secure them in place.
Great extra touch, Debbie.
