Finally, the Memory Quilts have had their last stitches stitched and been washed, dried and folded ready for passing on. I've told the story of these quilts in a previous post so I won't say too much here, but just show you the finished quilts front and back.
Aqua Pixellated heart - quilt front
and pieced backing nicely crinkled from the dryer.
Red pixellated heart - quilt front
and pieced backing. Happily, the three colour catchers I included in the wash worked a treat and there was no bleeding of any of the many reds used.
Random wonky stars quilt - front
and pieced back.
I added a label to the back of each quilt. They are slightly larger and less discreet that I might have wished but I want the children to understand what the quilts are.
The quilts have finished at 60" square each and I am pleased that they've turned out probably even a little better than I first expected. I won't deny that I am relieved to have finished them, perhaps because of the weight of responsibility I felt for making them worthy of my brother-in-law's memory. All that remains is for me to pray over them before I pass them on that they will be a blessing and a comfort to his children in time.
