I was really excited to do this project because I remember, as a child, my mother and aunts sitting around a quilt my grandmother had made talking about where the different fabrics were from. A dress from a special occaision, or fabric left over from a great-aunt or great-grandmother.
This is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do, I mean who am I to decide what's important to this wonderful little girl, what will mom think of the way I chose to cut out precious family memories. I knew that I had to make it pretty and it had to last through wear and tear.
Trying to make all those pieces match up, measuring twice, and no room for mistakes. I took on piece by piece, stitching seams, pressing then top stitching for durability. I spent so much time ironing!
I was so pleased with the end result, this is only a little peek. Only once I got word that the birthday girl loved her new keepsake was I able to breathe.
Thanks for putting this special project in my hands and letting me share it with others!
Until next time, xx.
