I love when I get the chance to be creative for a client, but I really love it when I have the opportunity to do almost whatever I want. Thats when my creative juices really start flowing and some of my best work comes out. This time I had the opportunity to create a memory quilt for a friend of my cousins. Last February, I made a memory quilt for Katrina, completely custom with appliqued and embroidered blocks, sorority letters, special symbols and custom quilting. It turned out so amazing! One of her friends, Kristine, had shirts from her younger years that her mother wanted to put into a quilt for her. I generally tell clients that the more shirts the better, this time I didn't have as many as I normally do and all the designs were smaller motifs. This presented a little bit of a problem, but I made do! The only constraint I had was using the colors from the Wisconsin high school she attended: Yellow/Gold and Black.
