Beautiful Eye Candy...a tribute to dear friend

I'd like to share with you this beautiful quilt some of my patchwork friends are putting together for a dear patchwork friends husband...
Sadly our beautifull, elegant, brave dear friend Lorrae lost her battle with cancer a few months ago, she is very dearly missed.
Some of our girls went over to help her Dh sort out her stash and see what unfinished projects they could  finish up for the family. There were a couple of children's quilts, and also a whole stack of pansy fabric diamonds already cut out...pansies were a favourite of Lorrea's.
Her dh asked asked if we could incorporate the pansy diamonds with his favourite photo of Lorrea into a quilt as a keepsake for him...isn't that just beautiful...
The girls came up with this design, inspired by the Jane Austin quilt...just so perfect!
They are going to add a gorgeous purple framing border then a wider cream border..
Beautiful, beautiful work girls... a lovely tribute to our dear friend Lorrea...

Laura, another of my patchwork friends is making this stunning black, white, grey and silver quilt for her daughter....this photo just does not do it justice...the silver in it gives it a lovely sparkle, the black and white that crisp stunning effect...
How gorgeous is this centre medallion piece..perfect flying geese...

Enjoy your it to the fullest....♥


  1. That is so sweet that her husband asked for a memory quilt - and it is going to be beautiful.
    Love the white, black and grey - just stunning.

  2. Both quilts are awesome! How nice of the girls to help out finishing some projects, and then making the memory quilt.

  3. beautiful and very special Julia......the girls have done well.....

  4. How moving ... love & friendship are such great inscentives to creativity. Labors of love really push us in doing our very best. I'm sure both quilts will bring smiles and comfort for many, many years !
    THANKS for sharing, Julia ;>)

  5. What a kind, kind gesture of the quilting friends to do for Lorrae's husband! He is really going to treasure this special memory quilt! I love the grey black and white one different! Looks like a B&W photo! :-)

  6. A beautiful tribute to your dear friend and her husband and family. Such caring ladies. The black and white quilt is simply stunning.

  8. What a lovely Memory quilt
    Her DH will treasure it
    Good on you girls for doing it for him

  9. What a lovely tribute to your dear friend!!! I'm sure her DH will just love what you girls have put together for him, a lovely thing to do!!! The black/grey/white quilt is indeed quite stunning!!!!

  10. Hi Julia, what gorgeous quilts. a lovely idea to remember a freind. I bet the medallion quilt looks absolutely wonderful in the 'flesh'. I have always wanted to do a medallion quilt ....oneday. sue~nz

  11. I agree about a photo of a neutral quilt not doing it justice. Same with a tan/cream/ecru quilt I made. It almost sparkled in person, but a photo can't show that. I'm sure the black/white/silver Q is as stunning as we can imagine.

    The quilt made as a tribute to your friend is very special and definitely memorable to everyone involved.
