I made this quilt to put out after Christmas and for Valentine’s Day. The pattern is from the MSQC and made from fabric by the yard. It is my first attempt at piecing a backing which turned out to be quite a project in itself. It goes together pretty fast. It was machine quilted by the MSQC.
I made this memory quilt 30 years ago and it was in major disrepair.. I cut off the edges to make a lap quilt out of the original queen size quilt. I sewed on a new border. I used pieces that had been trimmed off to patch up the back. I covered some small holes with yo-yos to create bubbles and patched the fish with contrasting fabric. I replaced the original ties with crochet floss and did some hand quilting around the new border. Now this quilt can be enjoyed by the next generation.
