    2 Memory Quilts

    I made these two memory quilts last year because my sil's father passed away. One was for him, and the other for his sister. They were made with his shirts. Included are his favorite passtimes, which was fishing, and the other, the Georgia Bulldogs. The bull dog and the beagle dog were thread painted. The beagle dog was his best friend. Hope you like.

    I love both of these quilts! The designs are great! Are they your original patterns? I love them for using a variety of blocks. And your embroidery is fabulous! Plus you add in the memories these contain & it's a win-win! You're so sweet to have made these & also to have shown them to us. Thanks!
