A patchwork of love


Here are some pictures of the memory quilt. This was commissioned for a special birthday from a daughter to her mum. It is such a lovely piece with the panels embroidered with personal sayings, messages and quotes. The centre panel is an embroidered family tree and there are three pockets with the grandchildrens names on which each hold handwritten memories transferred onto fabric and stitched to look like old fashioned handkerchieves. There is a hand print panel and fingerprints by another part of the family. It's all finished off with buttons and is hand tied. One of the quotes embroidered on the quilt says "A patchwork of love" - which sums this quilt up perfectly!
