A Great Design for a Memory Quilt!

This stunning quilt first caught our eye because of its strong design. The unusual layout and colors give it a southwestern flair. Then we read about the designer’s purpose for this quilt and realized it can be more than that.

Grandma's Dominoes QuiltDesigner Kymberly Pease made this quilt as a memory quilt for her Grandma. The light blocks are meant to represent dominoes. She plans to embroider dots and the names of her Grandma’s children, grandchildren and great grandchildren in those squares.

Whether or not you add the dots, this would be a great “guest book” or memory quilt for any occasion. Or, make up the quilt as shown in your favorite colors. Either way it’s sure to impress.

This is a simple quilt to make, and easy enough for beginning quilters, but you do need to stay organized when sewing the strips together. Kymberly has a clever way of doing that, which can work for other projects as well.

The finished quilt is 60″ x 70″.
