The memory quilts have come out to play again!
The last time I wrote about my memory quilt project, I had completed the center Carpenter's Wheel medallion for a 5th quilt. In this picture, the Carpenter's Wheel is pinned on top of another completed memory quilt top, so I could see if I liked the result. The next step was making more HSTs for another zig-zag border.
However, as I was digging through the bin of fabrics I had stashed for this project, I found another antique map fabric I knew would be perfect for this quilt!
The fabric features a host of imaginative nautical images, which will be great because this quilt and the next one will be for my nieces who live at the beach.
I ripped apart the original Carpenter's Wheel block and remade it with the nautical map fabric. I added the darker gold inner border last night. The HSTs for the zig-zag border were already pieced and I got them pinned in place - now I just need to stitch them. I have some sand dollar print fabric for the outer border and that will complete quilt #5!
One of my favorite pictures of my dad & me! He would've celebrated 84 years this week. It's good to have great family memories!
