Commemorative Quilt

Thursday, January 2, 2014

Allison Aller, quilt artist and one of the winners of the DMC Memories Contest, has been busy the past few months creating a hand-stitched quilt to commemorate her visit to France and the DMC Factory.

While creating her commission for DMC, Allie has been blogging about her progress, taking photos and showing us details of the quilt in progress.

Her final entry on the project can be found on her blog. This entry features amazing photos of her stitching journey while making the quilt, along with her thoughts about making selections for the batting and backing.

The photo to the left, for example, shows some of the DMC Needlework Threads used in the project, including our popular Memory Thread and Color Variations floss.

Allie has also used materials collected during her trip, including beautiful French trims, fabrics and notions, found during her visits to local shops and outdoor markets.

You can read more about the history of DMC on our web site, and visit the Archives Blog to see images of the winners and their tour of the factory and the amazing DMC archives.
