Memorial Quilt: Kilt & Coat Quilt #2

This is the 2nd quilt that I made for a family from a box of childhood coats & kilts that was discovered in their mother’s attic when she passed. You can view the first quilt here.

This time I’m sharing the back of the quilt first – because it is kind of fun, modern & minimal. Can you guess what the front design is?

 

Of the four quilts there are two Irish chain quilts and two Drunkards Path quilts. This is the first of the Drunkard Path quilts.

I quilted the quilt in a large curved fan design. In the center of each block I sewed a button. Some of the buttons are from the coats and others are from the kilts.

 

 

 

There is a total of 20 different fabrics from different garments in this quilt!
