CaBa - a commissioned family memory lane quilt

Back in February I have also been commissioned to make a family memory quilt. My client gave me a stack of worn clothes from family members of different generations. The idea was to make a memory quilt she wants to gift to her daughter as a wedding present. I was thrilled and honoured. I made her various proposals of design options and she chose a string quilt. 

Long story short, what started out with this

resulted into this

It measures 174 x 137 cm, turned out pretty soft and cuddly and I couldn't be happier with the result. The best part about it though is that my client is as happy as I am if not even more.

Yesterday was the day, when she and her husband came by to pick up the finished quilt.
