Memory Quilt: Boxer Shorts & Bandanas

"Boxer Shorts," 77" x 91", made by Pam Geisel, March 2015

This is a custom memory quilt that I made using the customer's son's boxer shorts, bandanas, pajamas, shorts, dress shirts, and some home d├ęcor fabric that was left over from some curtains that they used to have.

The colored squares are 4.5" x 7" with two white pieces of fabric on either side of the short edge to make the basket weave effect. And even though they don't look like it at the top of the quilt, they are rectangular in shape, it's just that this quilt is to big to hang from the quilt stand!

Here's a close up:


The binding was made using the fabric from the sleeves of two of the plaid dress shirts. You can click on the photos to see them larger.

That pattern is a good choice for featuring such a diverse range of prints and fabrics. All the white really brings it together. Nicely done!
