I am working on lap size and wall hanging size memory quilts for my dad's grands and great grands. Dad passed July 2010. He was 82. I'm using a picture of him, plus fabrics that remind me of him...almost like an i spy. I'm really excited and missing him so much. Daddy was an old time carpenter that did everything in building houses and built many. He also tinkered with clocks and made several and redesigned many. He made furniture...beds, tables, chairs, china hutches...he was just an all around gifted wood crafter. After becoming disabled due to an auto accident he started building miniture covered bridges and houses. He loved to sit in his rocking chair on the porch and just admire nature. In his final years...he had alzheimers and slowly lost his skills. He became as a little child that we all loved dearly.
There are some fabric designs I still need. If you know where I can find fabrics with the following:
such as clocks, covered bridges, carpenter, birds, etc
