OPAM January Finish!

My youngest daughters friend hired me to make a memory quilt using her grandparents clothing. I was unsure of which pattern to use but settled on the Shoo-Fly. I thought it was very fitting as most of our grandmothers used this pattern a lot in their quilt making. I started quilting this in December and finally got it off the frame. It is now bound and completed! And my daughters friend cried when it was presented to her!

You are so right that the Shoo-Fly was a popular pattern years ago. It was my Momma Newt's favorite to make. ;)

I see you did some personalized quilting in it too - I think I saw a name..Perez..? I'm sure the family will be so happy to see those clothes made up into a beautiful treasure.

Love from Texas! ~bonnie

PS - I'm back to following you again now ;) thanks for mentioning it when we talked today. ;)
