My youngest son loves The Beatles. He loves The Beatles with a passion that borders on infatuation. So, when he was going through a bad patch about a year ago, I decided that I would make a Beatles quilt for him. It all started with a 45” square of white fabric and a gazillion black applique’s. (no, I didn’t count the number of pieces it took to make that center medallion)
Then I pieced a few of these blocks to go around the medallion.
And then I began the embroidery for the top portion of the quilt ……….
And then the top was finished. That done, I didn’t know how I would back it! So I thought about it and came up with the Octopus Garden!
Complete with a couple of Yellow Submarines! Sweet! He loved it!
Enjoy! Merry Gay
