    look what I found

    the quilt - with its run-over cat, its male head spewing snakes, its embroidered tales of lies and deception. "divorce quilt" is something that looks like a dead cat - a furry brown beast with black tire tracks running across its broken back. "It's what my ex-husband's girlfriend . . . would look like if she got run over," A monster face with spiders and worms spilling out ...

    guess it all depends on how nasty you want to be, but it could be terribly funny and maybe healing through the laughter over real life situations

    My first thought was a crumb quilt using his old clothing, but that probably wouldn't work all that well. :?

    Now that's a good one!!! Take his GOOD shirts (or HER good dresses) and instead of packing them or throwing them out the door, cut off all the buttons and cut it up into squares :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Why not take a nice big square out of the back of each of his shirts. hee hee. THEN help pack 'em for his new life. (bet you can tell I don't have soft kind feelings for my ex.)

    I had a divorce shower, for me it was a happy occasion and I would have totally loved a divorce quilt. I think it really depends on how the person is handling it weather you could inject some humour in it or it they need to be embraced. The jagged edged wedding ring done in a twin size would be sooooo funny.

    You could do a wedding ring pattern with 1 or more missing pieces in each of the rings?
    i would use the rings over a broken heart in back ground

    Okay I have read all of these and there are some very strange quilts out there. WOW.

    You could always BLOW his picture up, make a wall hanging and hand her darts.

    I like the idea of it being a "New beginning" quilt.

    Perhaps you could call it a Fresh Start quilt. Divorce is a difficult process at best, but in the end, what you get is a new start. If she has children, perhaps a block designed to represent her in one corner and a block to represent him in the diagonally opposite corner, meaning Mommy & Daddy don't live together anymore. Then blocks to represent each child with Mommy and another with Daddy. This could remind the children of the love the parents still have for each of them.

    I don't know. My divorce was because of drugs and abuse so I was happy when I finally recovered. I have a great husband of 26 years and a wonderful life (busy) now.

    I have never heard of it but I should make one for my ex husband. I would take a copy of the court transcript. each page would be copied on to fabric and I would put the blocks in order and number. The next time the jerk said he didn't agree to something I would tell him what number block to look at. He couldn't say he misplaced the transcript, it would be on his bed. hehehe

    Some years ago I saw a divorce quilt displayed at G Street Fabrics at the Rockville, Maryland store. It was also featured in a Washington Post article. I think it was bought by a marriage counselor. The one square I remember was the quilter's fantasy of running over the other woman's cat.

    Half of a wedding ring quilt!
    Truthfully, I would have loved anything bright, cheerful and snuggly. It was a happy day for me with endless possibilities for the future!

    My mother's funeral was similar but she was in a coffin. She chose a nightgown in advance and had a book of Shakespeare open on her chest with her glasses held in one hand as if she fell asleep while reading.
