    My mom passed away last year after a very good life of 91 years...as a process of healing I took on the project of making a memory quilt for both my sister and my brother. The quilt below if for my brother. I spent a great deal of time on treating the fabrics and making it possible to use my computer t print scanned pictures. I also made background fabrics in a collage style that I also used. Just thought I'd share!

    Sorry for your loss, my Mom passed last year, too, so I understand. What a memory quilt. I wish I knew how to do that. Your brother and sister will thank you and cherish this. Beautiful Job.

    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
