Default My First Commissioned Quilt!

It's a queen-sized minky-backed weighted memorabilia quilt made from: 20 t-shirts, 3 boy scout scarves & badges, a football scarf, and a hospital pillow. I also made a tote bag to store and carry the quilt from the left-over scraps, as well as a duffle bag from his 2 soccer uniform shirts; both are customer appreciation gifts for being patient. The quilt also has a QR code where my customer can record a voice message before she gifts it to her grandson. I'm excited for her to receive it.01_memorabilia-quilt2.jpg02_minky-backing2.jpg03_duffle-bag2.jpg04_tote-bag2.jpg

Great job on the organization of all the memorabilia into a fabulous quilt. I know it will be loved and appreciated. I am very impressed by how nice your quilting looks on the Minky fabric. I have wanted to try that but always shy away for fear that it will slip round. Really nice quilt.

You did a great job combining all those different elements into the quilt— the design is fantastic and those bags are the perfect way to use up he scraps. That’s one lucky customer! Good job!
