Remember those memory quilts I was commissioned to make?
The ones that were made out of baby clothes?
And I'm ready to show you the first one...Zaid's.
I think when I last showed you these quilts, they were just quilt tops...
since then, my quilter Pam Cole quilted each of the quilts in a fantastic swirl pattern.
Zaid's mother had given me a few of the receiving blankets that she had gotten from the hospital when he was born.
They ended up making perfect binding for the quilts...
Lots of hand stitches secured the binding in place...
And voila, Zaid's quilt was finished!
|(Pam makes each quilt so personal...I love this extra step that she does)|
Stay tuned for his brother Zeen's quilt, I'll be showing that later this week!
