Beverly’s Sixty Degree Diamond Memory Quilt

Beverly’s Sixty Degree Diamond Memory Quilt!

Beverly Pritchard asked me to make this quilt for her from her mother’s clothes. She knew the exact pattern she wanted, so that’s just how I made it! The diamonds cut from her clothes were put together with a subdued white Tonal Vineyard print that lets the colors shine. Her mom’s name and the dates marking the beginning and end of her time on earth were embroidered in lavender on a central purple panel by Pam Miller. The quilt is backed with our Quilters Blenders Blue Atoll quilt backing, while Hobbs Heirloom batting completes the quilt sandwich on the inside. I quilted it in “Curly Swirly” with purple thread and made the binding from the same purple material used for the name & dates panel. I hope this quilt brings Beverly years of happiness remembering and feeling her mom’s love.
