Third and last quilt of the current commission. This one I decided to make a vase of flowers and I did end up using all the mom’s clothes without needing to add other fabrics. This piece has several three dimensional flowers. I even used a lined black eyelet skirt for the back on each piece and leftover pieces for the hanging sleeve. Final touch was personalized label with the woman’s picture on it. When the daughter saw the picture I emailed her, she told me she cried. I got goosebumps when she told me that! I did not know her mother, but almost felt as though she was channeling me. These three pieces went together so smoothly – without a hitch at all.
I’m looking forward to the next three pieces and the challenge they will provide.
