Every year I make about 6 t-shirt quilts. They are each unique. I love to puzzle the t-shirts and other memorabilia together to create a keepsake. Last December I made one in memory of a young man who died. It was a gift from two grieving parents to their other son. The entire experience was a blessing to me. I felt honored to be chosen by this couple to cut up and create a quilt. I have not have the unfortunate experience of losing a child. I don’t know how I would feel, first going through the t-shirts, ties, photos, memorabilia and selecting items to honor his memory.
I received many items. I am so thankful to my husband for helping me to build a design wall in my studio. This really helps when designing a memory quilt.
I start by laying out the items on the floor.
Next is to trim items and put them on my design wall.
Here’s the final quilt…
I have some pretty remarkable customers. Thanks for the opportunity to share this with so many!
Enjoy every moment!
