Quilted Memories finished!!

This quilt is a special quilt for my sister's in-laws - they just don't know it yet - it is a surprise for their wedding anniversary coming up this month.  This quilt was a combined effort between me and my mom.  The pattern is "Quilted Memories" designed by me.  However, we decided to make the pictures a little bit larger in this quilt to really show off the family photos.  Don't you think my mom did a beautiful job?  She pieced the top and it looks amazing.  Her ability to place colors and fabrics together and make them work together has always amazed me.  Way to go mom!

This was a more simple quilting job for me.  I used my mom's quilting machine while I was up in Salt Lake visiting family. 

I used a silver Magnifico thread that I think worked great with the grey, purple, cream and black colors in the quilt.

I had a lot of fun with the quilting.  It really was just whimsical with a little stitch in the ditch and free motion quilting.

I love double connecting curves. 

The thread just looks so great! 

My favorite part of this quilt was the borders.  Feathers are so fun to quilt up.  I have not quilted feathers in quite a while, so it was a great change up in my quilting.

We used a Minky back and I think it turned out beautiful.

I sure hope they like this quilt.

Fun contrast.

So, that's it.  A beautiful quilt that will hopefully be cherished for a long time to come.
