John Deere Quilted Memory Wall Hanging

My latest completion is a John Deere themed memory quilt - its a rather "big" wall hanging measuring at 40x36" but still really cute.

The sashing was fabric supplied by the client and was initially intended for the backing fabric. When I went shopping for sashing, I found this great John Deere tractor fabric and we agreed to use it for the backing.

But my choice to make the wall hanging a little bigger - almost backfired on me. :(

In the end, I was able to keep all her items including a pair of socks, a knitted cap and the little cap the baby Brantley wore in the hospital. The exposed tabs were made from the same sashing and binding fabric. 

Current Memory Quilt for a little boy

Here is my most recent completed quilt and I loved the cuddle backing to the touch but it really was difficult to quilt because the meandering would run against the nap of the fabric. However, in the end its beautiful!!

Let's Hear it for the Boys!!

So after making all those girl quilts... I figured the boys can't be left out and made a few for the little boys that might need a little donation quilt. My first stop was for some Disney inspiration with some Mickey Mouse!

But this time, after suggestions from another lady from the Project Linus group, to keep the quilting a bit more simple and larger. I guess the tighter quilting makes for a stiffer quilt. Now with cotton batting, I would have to agree but the poly-batting is so "fluffy" that even the tighter quilting doesn't seem to make the quilt feel stiff. I am sure the little one will love it nonetheless.

And aside from my son's quilt, I have not made many boy themed quilts. It was a happy change to work with only blue fabrics.
