    Is this for a quilt label? a gift card? or ?
    Perhaps give us a little more background and detail, to help our creative juices flow!

    There are lots of websites that you can search for quotations by subject or author. These two are good.

    Memories are for when you want to re-live the best of times, for a life time.

    When this you see,
    Remember me.

    I have seen this on quilt labels many times.

    Memories of you, I find, have been quilted, in my mind.

    In Honor of {...} who led a life worth remembering.

    Quilted to warm the body, while memories of {...} warm the soul.


    These are some I saw and remember from when my mom died last December, and keep on a piece of paper by my desk...


    One need not be a chamber to be haunted; one need not be a house; the brain has corridors surpassing material place.
    ~Emily Dickinson, "Time and Eternity"

    To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die.
    ~Thomas Campbell, "Hallowed Ground"

    And my favorite:
    "Don't cry because it's over, Smile because it happened."
    Author: Dr. Seuss

    Little bits of fabric,sewn into a quilt. Form a warm & loving blanket from which memories are built. Then when you seek peace & comfort, in the middle of the night...it will keep you warm & snug until the morning light. And if you're feeling lonely, or if you're feeling sad, just wrap yourself inside this quilt, and things won't seem so bad.


    :-D

    This has nothing to do with memories, but i love this phrase and i put it in things i have done for my dear ones:

    When counting my blessings,
    I always count you twice!

    the things you are, and the things you never want to lose."
