    Denim Bereavement Quilt for friend

    I am in the process of making a bereavement quilt for a friend out of her brother's clothes. This should be 1 of maybe 3 or 4......

    That is very sweet of you. I am sure she will treasure the quilt.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    A compassionate heartfelt endeavor and a job well done. Your friend will treasure it and the memories the various fabrics recall.

    You are one of a kind-I plan on making a memory quilt for our Grandson, out of our daughters hospital scrubs-they have many kid figures on them-I do like the little doggie leg and foot on one of your pictures too-they must think the quilt is nice too-your friend is lucky to have the memories of her brother too
