kimblanchard Posted March 9, 2005 Share Posted March 9, 2005 hi everyone i lost my dad last thursday. i am planning on making a memory quilt for my brother out of dad's clothing and also using photo transfers of other things that were important to him and that he loved...... i haven't figured out a design yet! but i will. anyway, i've been reading postings through blurry eyes and someone mentioned ideas on how to honor and memoralize our beloved departed and i just thought i'd mention this as an idea. you dont' need to have any special skill, if you know how to sew a button you can make a quilt! i made 2 10 years ago with no prior experience, just using a book for guidance. just an idea that maybe some of you will like. as for me, it will absolutely fill my heart with love when i present it to my brother and he can cover himself each night when he lies down to sleep, with the love of my father, stitched by hand by his daughter. it's a gift to my brother and also a tremendous gift to myself. love lori Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
