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!
