    Memory quilt

    Aloha I’m working on a babies memory quilt and the mom wants about 6 bibs added to this quilt and I can’t figure out how to do that she doesn’t want them cut. Any suggest. Mahalo

      I thought of that but since she doesn’t want them cut hard to do that

    Could you fuse them to a background block and then stitch around the edges?

    My concern about not cutting them is the backing of the bibs.

      Yes since they’ve been worn so much they are all wonky. I did try to stabilize one kinda helped a little.

    Non-quilters don't understand. Suggest she make her own. I can't imagine a bib added to a quilt without some modifications. It may reflect on your quilting skills if you try to do as she wants.

      can the backing be removed for the most part? Now they have been washed, so them being left in place is not the problem. you say sewing. You could applique them as is but by hand. not by machine. they just need to be stitched down to fabric. you could make blocks and then put those together by machine. the ties could be stitched down too. could end up quite cute.

        Try this page for some ideas. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q...cw=1686&ch=800 I searched "memory quilts with baby clothes". I don't know if you are on facebook, but someone recently posted a cute one on the Quilt along with Pat Sloan facebook group.

          Yeah, it's a tough one... I'd have gone for Bubby's option, but that's still going to be quite demanding.
