G 283 - Nannie Diggs - Baby Memorial Quilt - Zig Zag

Baby Memorial Quilt


Posting for Nannie Diggs:

After seeing the charm quilt I had made for myself with almost 800 different fabrics, the parents wanted the same pattern using their baby’s clothing. It turned out to be a good choice for the pattern since so many of the clothing pieces were tiny. The 91 x 96” quilt contains 1026 two by five inch rectangles, along with about a dozen squares appliqu├ęd with larger clothing pieces. To make matters more interesting, the parents wanted “puffy” batting. I decided to use the CL zig zag template which allowed me to complete this challenging project with ease.
