I recently finished a commission quilt for a customer using a collection of her son's hockey jerseys. She requested irregular piecing and that the "battle scars" on the jerseys be included.
She couldn't remember if he was kicked with a skate blade here or hit with a stick. Ouch, rough sport!
This quilt got an all-over meander in a medium grey. The batting was Hobbs 80/20 and the thread was So Fine top and bottom.
Great memories preserved!
