Memory Quilts

Don't forget to sign up for my first giveaway here!

I've got a new project going on.

A while back, my "Uncle" passed away.  He wasn't really technically an uncle, but our families were so close, that we used those endearing terms for each other.

My cousin asked me to make a few memory quilts for her mother, brother and herself out of old shirts that he used to wear. 

She even sent a few pictures on fabric for me to include.
The quilt tops aren't very soothing to the eye from a fabric stand-point, but I know they will be soothing to the soul!

The tops are all pieced and one of them is quilted and is waiting for binding.  I hope to finish off the other two this week and send them off to her. 

I can't wait for her to get them. Linking up...

  1. You better pack some tissues with the quilts when you send them. They are sure to be a treasure.

  2. I think they are a wonderful idea - I'm only sorry my mum gave away all my dad's clothes before I knew about such things!
