Remember a long while back I was given the opportunity to make a quilt for my friend who lost her mom to cancer???

She gathered some clothes...shirts,etc. that were her moms and some shirts that were her father's and asked me to make her a  lap quilt to give her father.

Well, after looking at all the many clothes and shirts she had given to me I came up with a pattern.  Her mom was a teacher for over 25 years.  She taught in the public school system; as well as  at church.  So, to me it was important to put her T-shirt that represented most of her life as a teacher in the middle of the quilt.  She was also a grandmom and alumni of Perdue.   Go Boilermakers!    My friend tells me she was a wonderful woman that loved the Lord, teaching and her family.

I recently sent off this quilt to my friend.  I titled the label "Wrapped in Love."  I sure hope her Daddy likes the quilt and finds comfort in it not only by warmth, but by the memory of his lovely wife. 

Here is the finished quilt which my daughter so graciously held up for me so I could snap a pic of it to share on the blog.

Pin It Now!

What a fabulous way to keep memories. It must be hard for people to throw away the clothes of loved ones who have passed away. This is an excellent idea for treasuring them forever. Beautifully done x x
