64 x 72
This is the second memory quilt I made for my friend. For this one I used three items of clothing, a purple polo shirt, a purple dress shirt, and a purple jacket/blazer. They are sitting on the bottom of this pile of fabrics.
For the back she requested this Military fabric and she wanted the the flag from one of his shirts added also. I added a border to the shirt and inserted it on the bottom corner. I didn't have enough fabric to go the other way (because it is directional) but I think this still looks okay.
Finally, she requested that I quilt Love, Dad - on the quilt. I don't have the best handwriting, but I gave it a good try. I tried to keep the start and stop to a minimum. Next time I'm going to write it out with a disappearing pen first.
When I started this quilt, I wasn't sure how this was going to work with all the things she was asking me for. But now that it is finished, it is the most thoughtful quilt I have ever made. My friend has 4 children and this is the first memory quilt to be finished. I can't believe how wonderful it is! Hopefully the next three will look just as great!
