His second quilt, (first quilt here). A specific request granted.
87" x 88"
derived from a Bee Sewcial block made for Marci
2016 theme of "scale" (from 12" block to 88" queen quilt)
Request: pink, somewhere in the quilt (pink was one of my Mother in Laws favorite color)
Kona cotton solids in various blues
Bernina #4 stitch stretched x4 mostly in light gray with 5 rows of neon pink (for the 5 decades of marriage they shared).
Pieced, mostly color matched, 2" straight of grain binding with 2 small pops of pink.
|I also included a portion of one of my mother in laws famous prayer flag prints|
100% cotton warm and natural batting.
The title "Life's Journey" is not mine. As I was piecing the back, I was pulling fabrics that coordinated, but also reminded me a bit of my father in law. I came across a very old cotton print with it's selvedge still attached. On that selvedge was the name of the fabric, "Life's Journey". There is no way I could have anticipated or chosen a better name.
