Wedding Quilt Replacement Project

The members of StitchMAP have volunteered to help replace a wall hanging that was recently lost in a fire. The wall hanging belonged to the aunt of our member Donna. It was a crazy quilt commemorating the wedding of her aunt and uncle. A total of 16 blocks, measuring 8" each, done in pink and white satin were pieced by our project coordinator Lyn G. You can see all of the naked pieced blocks on Lyn's blog here.

The blocks have been sent out to various members who have volunteered to embellish them. Colors have been coordinated, motifs, lace and other trims chosen. Everyone is in stitching mode right now. Our members who do not crazy quilt wanted to be involved so they are making two cross stitched labels for the back of the quilt. One label will have the wedding date and the couple's name. The other will acknowledge StitchMAP's involvement in the recreation of the original quilt. Other members have volunteered to make tatted lace to be used on the blocks.

Here is one block that has already been completed and returned to Lyn.

It was stitched by Mentor Kathy S.
