Love from Margaritaville: WIP Wednesday

This is by far my most anxiety filled WIP.  I am not really a fabric hoarder.  I don't stress cutting up fabric because at the end of the day, it's just fabric and there is always more coming.  Except.

Those blocks up there are for a custom memory quilt.  And they are made from her Dad's clothing.  I've never met Jenny in person, but got to know her very well through an online community.  So I know just how important her Dad was to her and how heartbreaking it was to lose him far too early.  And so it was with a fair amount of anxiety I began the cutting.

Thankfully she is pleased with the progress so far.  I am as well.  I think Crooked Cabins by Kati at From the Blue Chair is a fantastic pattern for these pieces and I am excited to see it come together over the coming weeks.

  1. I love the crooked cabins pattern, these prints will look wonderful!

  2. Sad to read the reason for the memory quilt.
    I clicked over here from the linky because of the log cabin look in your photo. I've never tried any of the wonky type blocks. They do look like fun.

  3. Love he blocks. They look fabulous. I have been requested by my daughters to make a memory quilt with t-shirts. Any pointers?
