    What a wonderful memory quilt idea! I do hope you are able to share a picture. Hopefully, the quilt will assist with the healing process.

    I would also have had a hard time cutting up perfectly good garments.

    I could never had said anything better than everyone posting here. It is truly a blessing that you are able to do this for this family. While the mom will cherish this in her lifetime, so will the rest of the family through theirs.

    I also wanted to thank you for this story. I like making memory quilts but usually they are for an adult who has passed away. This would have been even harder if you had known all the details right away.

    What a beautiful story...the stuff that gives all the memories (both old and new) that quilts are made of.

    You will be blessed and I also think you are a person to be admired. Although, I love quilting so very much I cannot tell you how nervous I would be making a quilt out of something as sentimental as that. I would really have to ask God to bless my hands before tackling that type of quilt.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.
