    Lightbulb Memory Quilt for a Baby

    I made this baby memory quilt for a family. The grandmother passed away shortly before her grandbaby was born. I was asked to make a memory quilt for the baby, out of the grandmothers clothing. The lady loved animals, and loved to hunt, so that's what inspired the idea for the quilt.

    This is so cute! It will keep the memories of G'ma alive. Just think of Mama and Daddy telling the little one about their memories of the various fabrics.
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!

    You did a great job of finding cute animal designs and incorporating the grandmother's clothing. It will mean a lot to the family, I know. It's an adorable memento/baby quilt.
