This quilt was made as a memory quilt for my Mom. She is the youngest of 8 children and has lost her parents and several siblings and I wanted to honour her family and memories with this quilt. I also machine embroidered a Bible passage from Ecclesiastes 3:1-8, 11a. The quilt is made up of 3" squares, there is some applique and pictures I printed onto fabric. Each corner reflects a season of the year. I also used 'hot ribbon' around the pictures - first time I have worked with this product and was very pleased with the results.
