Making a journal quilt
We came upon a delightful photo blog by a woman from the USA, who decided to create a quilt to celebrate her sixtieth year. The idea is to do a square of the quilt during each of the 52 weeks, to record something particlar to each week.
As a result it is an amazing collection of memorabilia: marking family gatherings, holidays, her quilting experiments, retirement lunches,the passing seasons, anniversaries, birth of grandchildren and many other incidentals of this lady's life.
The results, an incredibly varied and fascinating commemoration of a landmark year, were revealed on her 60th birthdays. Check it out at Quiltingmom
We'd love to hear about other examples like this.
