My Quip – Blue Memories For a King Size Quilt

Good day,

Next on our list is a new and original quilt, Blue Memories

This is our first challenge of taking a bunch of old shirts and skirts, 46 to be exact, and creating a quilt. We sort of feel as if we have stepped back into time. We are making a new quilt creation of used and well-worn fabric.

We have been requested to create a memory quilt, of our style, of the shirts worn by an acquaintance’s grandmother.

The above inserted images are of the fabric that will compose the top of Blue Memories. All fabric has been prepped and we are cutting 953 squares. The completed quilt is targeted at 108” by 108”, (274 cms by 274 cms), square. All-things-being equal the final size of the Blue Memories will approximate a king-size quilt.

Blue Memories is the third quilt project in the list of 17, which should have been 18, which I posted on My Quip. You must link back time and again to check up on our work and status.

If you are interested, and would like some more information of available quilts, regarding costs, shipping, and insurance, please check our Quilts SB Etsy shop.

Andy and I are moving at a steady pace with our quilt and fabric wall hanging work. Keep abreast of all updates. I have added a “Follow By Email” capability at the bottom right of each posting under The Grid. You can also become a Follower of Quilts SB. Click on the “Join this site” to follow Quilts SB.

To see previously posted quilts, there is a visual Grid presentation at the bottom of the Quilts SB page. Move your cursor over any mini-picture found there and click to see an enlargement. Move your cursor to the "Q#" link to see the quilt's details. If the quilt’s title is highlighted in yellow or in red, it has found a home in a collection and is no longer available.
