Wall Hanging is Stunning

A couple of years ago, while at a craft store, I came across a fabric that featured a moose head. As soon as I saw it, I pictured it cut up and put back together as an "attic window" quilt, which I would turn into a wall hanging, and which would be the perfect gift for my son.

I cut out the moose’s head, cut the fabric into squares, built the attic window, then appliquéed the moose head, some flowers and a puppy onto the wall quilt. Then I quilted it, mostly with a machine, although some things had to be done by hand.

I have been a quilter for many years and have made many quilts, but this one is the one I am most proud of.

Lillian Clements lives in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, and, in addition to quilting, enjoys vegetable and flower gardening.

 

Quilt Surrounds You in Memories

The first memory quilt I made was for a granddaughter. It was made out of T-shirts and sweatshirts she had worn from the time she was 2 until she graduated from high school. The shirts had logos from different sports and activities in which she had participated. There were so many shirts, I made her two quilts.
