Amanda's Memory Quilt (#2)

Thursday, April 23, 2015

When Amanda sent me the box of fabrics to make a memory quilt from her mom’s fabric stash, I quickly concluded I could make many quilts from the fabric in the box. I decided I would secretly make three quilts – one for each sibling. (More details on the post for Quilt #1.)

Geese in the Corner memory quilt
I found the “Geese in the Corner” quilt idea on Pinterest. I cut large squares from solid white Moda Bella fabric that I bought at The Stitchin’ Post in Willow Springs, MO and small squares from every fabric in the box.

When I sewed the small square to the large square, I sewed two lines ½” apart. Then cut in-between the two sewn lines. This created the goose block, but also an extra HST (half square triangle) block.

I did not have any large pieces left for a quilt back, so I purchased a navy tiny floral print from Wal-Mart. I had Kathy Michel quilt this one too. I used a red tiny floral print from Wal-Mart to bind.

I gave the quilt (along with this one and this one) to Amanda when she came to visit us the weekend of May 2.

Three quilts for three siblings. A beautiful tribute to a mother and sewist.
