Memory quilt by Terri

This is one of those really special quilts that I love to work on.  The design is called and Irish Chain because the blocks form a chain across the quilt.  Part of that design is the large open spaces that are then formed and usually filled with quilting.  Terri instead had family members create their own blocks and fill the white space with memories for the quilt recipient.   She had attended Oregon City High School, and this was her graduation quilt. 

 The above embroidery represents the mascot for the school, the Pioneer.
 I quilted continuous curves in the chains, then use the edges of the blocks for the spine of the feathers that surround each one.  Feathers were repeated in the border.  The quilt has family photos and her letter from school.
