Custom quilt

A client came in and wanted a quilt done custom for her son, who will be leaving soon to serve an LDS mission in Brazil. She wanted pictures of Church related items, his name, his mission, and their family quilted onto the quilt.

She used two pieces of fabric, no piecing involved, to make this great gift for her son! The binding fabric was made from the remnants of the backing fabric, and she had me bind it for her.

Above: the Book of Mormon and the Holy Bible.

Above and Below: Her son's favorite LDS temple is the Mt. Timpanogos temple in American Fork. She had me quilt a picture of the temple (below) and then I wrote the name next to it (above).

Above: The CTR (Choose the Right) shield
Below: She wanted a house with a stick-figure family, and dog, with names written underneath. Instead of making the missionary a stick figure, I put him in a shirt complete with namebadge, and pants.

Below: In the center of the quilt I wrote "Called to Serve" his name, and his mission.

Not pictured: Along the top edges I wrote "Families are Forever" and "I will go, I will do". Along the left edge I wrote "I belong to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" and along the right edge, towards the bottom I wrote "Return with Honor". The bottom edge has a saying that the client brought in that she liked: "God's gift to us is our family."
It turned out really cute. It was only 45 x 63. Not too big, but small enough that he could easily pack it with him from one area to another.
