A Special Quilt

has been my recent focus.

The binding has been hand-stitched…

to finish it off.

The details are beautiful…

  1. oh, it looks like so very special clothes went into making that quilt, so many beautiful details, a great memory keeper!

  2. You are very talented Tracey. What a special quilt you have made…

  3. Nobody else but you could do justice to such a special quilt. Your beautiful hands would have stitched every stitch with great care and love.

  4. That looks tantalisingly gorgeous!

  5. Do I see pleats in the quilt? FABULOUS!

  6. What a wonderful idea! I have some hand-made dresses that I bought for K & N that I just can’t give away; they may someday find themselves in quilts too?

    It brings a tear to my eye – just the thought – and I haven’t seen it yet. It is special in a way that shows love in each stitch, and memory in each fabric piece.

  9. Like Grandma, I have a tear in my eye. You have given a gift of love and care and it is beyond beautiful… right into beauty full.

  10. What a privilege to be asked to make such a precious quilt. I am absolutely confident that your quilt will be a wonderful source of joyful memories and will enfold who ever uses it with love.

  11. So beautiful Tracey. You are clever and wonderful.

    Hello dear!

    I love the quilt it is so beautiful. I’m working on a memory quilt for a dear childhood friend of mine. Hand stiching the entire thing. It’s taken quite the toll on my poor fingertips! Can’t wait to see the entire quilt:]

  16. I pop in here from time to time from Alice C’s blog–but not in so long. Lovely to see this post! I just finished up one of my own from my baby girl’s (now 14 months) o-6 month clothes. It made me cry when I finished it. I could not tackle hand stitching the binding, so I machine stitched the binding to the back first and then finished the front with a zig zag. I still need to learn a but better how to tackle mitered corners. This is lovely!
