Bloggers’ Quilt Festival :: Spring 2011

As I can't get to Salt Lake City, USA at the moment for the Spring Market, I have decided to be a part of Amy's Bloggers' Quilt Festival.


My quilt is special to me as I made it in memory of my special son and my lovely mother. I think this quilt was about the 3rd or 4th that I had made and I made this one with out a pattern and just loved all the blocks and fit them in here and there and added others to make up the gaps. The border I designed to fit the quilt and the photos of my son and Mum are the first ones I did with printing on fabric.
I love stitchery and so incorporated lots of stitchery blocks, I recieved several blocks with hearts on them from the lovely ladies from the Craft Forum and so incorporated them into the quilt as well.
I made this quilt in March 2007.
I hope you enjoyed looking at my Memory Quilt.
Hugs to all......

Beautiful Vicki....my first 'real' quilt was a memory quilt too....printing photos on fabric and making blocks to fit which was quite ambitious!
