    Sorry for your terrible loss. The quilt is a treasure that you grandson will remember not only his father by, but you. I can easily imagine him sharing it with his own children someday.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. Your memory quilt is adorable and I know your grandson will love it. I am looking forward to seeing the one in which the penquins have colored bellies.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    My condolences to you and all your family for the loss of your beloved son. The penguins are both fun and dignified, like the living creatures. Excellent execution.

    You did a beautiful job! It's so cute and such a great idea. But I'm sure it was a hard quilt to make.... So sorry that you have lost your son so young. I hope the penguins will comfort your grandson.

    Adorable! I love it and your grandson will cherish it forever.

    I can only imagine the memories making this quilt brought to your mind. Thanks for sharing.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Thank you for sharing...both the beauty and the pain. I congratulate your DIL for not doing anything with her husband's clothes for 2.5 years....and to you, for having your Grandson help pick out the shirts...Your quilt will give years of comfort.
