I have started a memorial quilt for my brother-in-law’s family. He lost a his sister a few years back. The family gave me two of her saris to make some kind of quilt. It took me some time to work out what would be the best way to go about this project and I finally decided to keep it simple.
I am doing simple paper pieced square in a square blocks. I know there must be a million names for this block. If you can think of them comment below:)
There is something so zen about this project. The blocks are turning out perfect and the material is not being too difficult. I hope the family is pleased with it. It will be a wall hanging with four 6″ squares across and 8 down. I just ordered some YLI silk thread and some silk/bamboo batting, both are a first to me.
I have this piece from the tunic. I am not sure what I will do with it, but I think it may go on the backing with some embroidery on it.
I will keep you posted on my progress.
