Design Wall Monday

The December UFO quilt top is on the design wall! It's definitely not a beautiful quilt in appearance, but it represents lots of beauty and love. It's a memory quilt for my children. In 2007 I wrote a little note on a piece of fabric about what was happening in the family on that day. Now all the little notes are sewn together and the quilting can begin.

It will be a Christmas gift so that means I have 4 days to get it finished!

Don't rush it or you might be ripping out stitches. That will be a family heirloom.

Not all endearing quilts have to knock your socks off. This will be cherished for the memories it brings to mind.

That is a sweet idea for a memory quilt.
Did you write the notes with the intention of making a quilt? Just curious how you came to be making notes on fabric. :)

Such a wonderful idea for a memory quilt and sure to bring smiles when the family read those little squares. Maybe you dont need the stress of trying to have it finished for Christmas day, just hang it as it is.
