The “Memory Lane” quilt is finished! As you may recall I made it at the request of my friend & medical school classmate @organicgreendoc asked me to make a quilt for a silent auction. He has early Alzheimer’s and blogs about it here. The finished quilt measures 54 in X 72 in.
I named the quilt “memory lane” as a play on the quilt pattern I used called country lanes from the book Mountain Mist Quilt Favorites, page 121.I added 3-dimensional leaves and forget=me-knots after I finished the quilting. My first layout meant to represent a path did not work. I ended up placing 42 flowers around the border. It works much better.
Here are two photos to show the three dimensional forget-me-knots and leaves around the border. Instructions for making the flowers and leaves can be found here (pdf file) and a photo of one being made.
