Memory Quilt

I had the privilege of creating a memory quilt for a customer from his deceased wives clothing to give to his daughters.  These projects can be quite emotional but I believe this turned out very well.

I found the pattern in a quilt magazine and thought it would lend itself to clothing.  My goal was to make a quilt that felt modern while still holding the memories of the clothing sewn into the quilt.

I had a friend, Naomi, piece the center of the quilts.  My schedule does not have enough room in it sometimes to do the things I love.  There are two quilts almost exactly alike.  My hope is that these quilts will comfort the recipients and help them remember the good memories of their mom.
