3. TITLE: Planning and Laying Out a Memory Wall Quilt

DESCRIPTION: I had some of my Memory quilt wall hangings with me last Nov. and several attendees wanted to have more info on making one for themselves.
I will bring things to lay one out and demo attaching the items etc. After the demo you can begin pla
nning your own project.
           If you want to start working on one for yourself....bring a 42" by 42" piece of print fabric for the back. A plain 42" by 42" piece for the top. A 42" by 42" piece of felt for the batting...Or thin quilt batting. A little dress, or romper, or pajamas, etc. for the main focus item. Other items...Soft baby shoes, hat or bonnet, bib, undershirt, doilies, old embroideries, old quilt pieces, ribbon, fabric to make Yo-Yos, pacifier, rattle, a little toy etc. Whatever you want to add to your wall hanging.
         My wall hangings are made from clothes I bought at second hand stores but many of you have treasured items that are perfect for this project.
         I will bring a pattern for little felt shoes for you to make if you don't have any real shoes. If you are going to make shoes you will need a 9"X12" piece of wool/rayon felt.
         This is a fun way to display those precious items in your home….or give the wall hanging as a gift to the grown up "owner".
