    Finished The Memory Quilt

    That I made out of my Brothers shirts. Seems like this one took forever to finally complete. This will be in the mail tomorrow for my Dear Mother. I know she will be wrapped in memories of her son when she uses this.

    I'm sure it was a labor of love for you but also hard on you. She will love it.

    I think the quilting is extra special. Wonderful for a "memory" quilt.

    I think memory quilts are a wonderful invention. Yours is fine. I know the work I did in memory of my father helped me with the loss and helped others too. This surely will be an asset all the way around.

    What a loving and thoughtful gift for your Mother. She will love it.
    No matter how tough life is, it sure beats the alternative.

    I think this is why God blesses some folks with the love of quilting! What a beautiful way to say "I love you"
