Memory Quilt

As I previously mentioned, I am making a memory quilt for a customer.  I’ve deconstructed the shirts and then reconstructed the material as a quilt top.

I prefer an accent fabric to provide a little energy to a memory quilt top.  The accent fabric also helps to stabilize the many times washed and slippery shirt material.  I’m going for a randomly pieced quilt top.   Here’s a peek preview of the the sewn top:

AND my bag is packed for MQX.
