Memory Quilts.

I've had it.  I can't take it anymore.


What you need to know is that when I create something for someone (especially if it's a gift or if it's commissioned), I work REALLY hard to present it to the recipient first- before I plaster it all over the interwebZ....but extenuating circumstances are preventing that from happening this time.


And this time I am BURSTING at the seams wanting to blog about these quilts.  I absolutely cannot hold it in ONE MORE SECOND because I love them so much.


For the past three months I've been working on a series of memory quilts for a friend who lost her father a few years ago.  It was her desire to have his clothing (mostly shirts, a few pairs of shorts) made into quilts for herself, her aunts, and her sisters.



It was an honor an a privilege to create these quilts.  I hope that they'll be full of great memories for the recipients.


The pattern inspiration was taken from the book Growing Up Modern by Allison Harris (CluckCluckSew).  I love her stuff.  :)

I am one of the sisters, Anne, and I can't tell you how beautiful these quilts are. You did a wonderful job and it was obvious that you put so much of your heart and soul into them. Of course there were some tears when I first saw it but they were happy tears as it makes me feel close to him. Thank you for bringing comfort to five girls. Kathy
