John Deere Quilted Memory Wall Hanging

My latest completion is a John Deere themed memory quilt - its a rather "big" wall hanging measuring at 40x36" but still really cute.

The sashing was fabric supplied by the client and was initially intended for the backing fabric. When I went shopping for sashing, I found this great John Deere tractor fabric and we agreed to use it for the backing.

But my choice to make the wall hanging a little bigger - almost backfired on me. :(

In the end, I was able to keep all her items including a pair of socks, a knitted cap and the little cap the baby Brantley wore in the hospital. The exposed tabs were made from the same sashing and binding fabric.
