Beautiful Bouquets Memory quilt

Beautiful Bouquets Memory quilt

Update: I quilted (6th quilt on my longarm) with Urban Elementz "Chantilly" quilting pattern and hand bound. - I saw this "Beautiful Bouquets" pattern in Quilter's World Spring 2020 issue and I knew I wanted to make it as a memory quilt. Last fall an "adopted granddad" for my kids passed away from surgery complications from another bout with cancer. I had worked with ties in quilts before, so when my friend ("adopted grandmother" to my kids) asked if I wanted to make a quilt from her husband's ties for her, I immediately said yes. My friend had to wear a tie everyday at work (before he retired), so he took delight in wearing unusual or unique ties, for example Tigger, Mickey Mouse, An Alien, and a reindeer). The flowers in this quilt top contain parts of 27 ties. My friend hasn't seen it yet as she lives in another state now. I'll quilt it as soon as I get my longarm back from being repaired (bad circuit board). I hope this quilt brings my friend some comfort as she'll be wrapped in his love. I loved using a new Stripology Squared ruler to square up the blocks. 65" x 85" 6/25/2020
