InstructionsTrace the child's handprint each year; fuse it to quilt square and embroider it to secure it. I also included places we lived, schools she attended, and special events in her life, ending with her 18th birthday.
Type of item: Functional
Style: Classic, Cute
Scrap materials, muslin, batting
What was your inspiration?
Seeing my first child's tiny hand, I wanted to remember it forever. As she grew, we added other parts of her childhood - schools, awards, jobs, dance, music - until the quilt was a representation of her childhood.
What are you most proud of?
The pride my daughter has for this quilt and the love that went into making it. It is a queen-size quilt that I quilted by hand for her.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Let the child help you choose the prints you use and the memories to include in the quilt.
