A Memory Quilt

I made this 65" x 65" quilt for mum and Tom for Christmas. It was my first "disappearing 9 patch" quilt. It has a warm grey flannel backing and polka-dot binding. I chose the cotton fabrics carefully, ordering many of them custom-printed from Spoonflower.

It represents their adventures in America: the trips across the wild west, the heartfelt moments at Gettysburg and their love for Johnny Cash and guitars. It's bright and possibly a bit busy but then it holds so many memories.  I hope they look at each square and think back to the amazing times we've had together.  My favorite is the Native American square. I wonder what theirs will be?
