A Custom Family Quilt
I just finished quilting this beautiful quilt for my friends A and T. It is a gift for their mother-in-law. They traced all of the grandkids hands, and A did the beautiful embroidery. I am always impressed when people do things I can't. :) A also pieced the quilt top together.
I did some echo quilting around the hands, and stitched in the ditch between the yellow and white squares.
I then echo quilted around the ric rac border, and quilted the names of all of the adults in the family on the white squares. I connected all of the names with a loopy line.
They also had me do the binding by machine for them. It is the same red as the backing.
And here is a peek at the entire back.
Thanks A and T for letting me quilt your beautiful quilt and post about it online. :o)
