Memory Quilts

I recently wrote about the memory quilts I've been working on.  Well, I managed to finish piecing, basting and quilting both of those memory quilts this week.  And I have to say - they came out exactly like I wanted them to.

This first one is for Diane, my father-in-law's youngest daughter:


And this one is for Sandra, his oldest daughter:


For both quilts, I cut strips of varying widths and then randomly sewed them together into strip sets. To make the top larger, I used some solid strips between each row.

The quilting is a soft, big meander.


The quilts are super soft.  They both measure about 50" square.  Both sisters-in-law are visiting this weekend so I plan on giving them the quilts then.

And I kept a few strips to make a little something for my sweetie too.  I just haven't decided what that's going to be yet.

I will be linking up at Crazy Mom Quilts for Finish It Up Friday and at A Quarter Inch from the Edge for TGIFF.

And these quilts are projects number 2 and 3 on my Q3 FAL list.
