    Memory quilt

    Here is a picture of a memory quilt my nephew's mother in law made for him from his mothers pajamas. She brought it to him this last weekend just before Mother's Day. (My sister passed away in 2005) This quilt means so much to him and I almost cried when I saw it. What a blessing!

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    What a nice thing for her to do. I would have cried too. I almost did as it is. Beautiful quilt!

    Just lovely. What a great idea to use PJs. I'm making a memory quilt for my grandsons. My daughter passed this January.

    So thoughtful and what a caring gift of heart.
