    That just brought tears to my eyes! What a treasurer for sure! I wish I was into quilting when my dad passed. I wore one of his t-shirts as a nightie until it feel apart.

    What a superb job you did with this quilt -- the smaller 'shirts', pockets from pants, etc., are wonderful! Your label was terrific, too. What a nice memorial quilt to remember your dad with....I'm quite sure he's looking down at you from heaven and shaking his head in wonder at the masterpiece you created!
