Back on Dec 19th, just before Christmas, I first heard from Becca regarding a large family project. Joan & I have now contracted to do a set of three t-shirt memory quilts for her mother, Margaret, and the daughters, Becca & Allison. The goal is for each one to have a quilt that is sized to fit at least a double bed. Joan will design and piece the quilt tops & I will longarm and bind them. Work will begin in mid-January. As usual, I will track progress here! This is quite exciting for all involved. The referral for this work came through my daughter, Joanne, of Ye Old Forest Quilters.
