How lovely. Wonderful tribute for your husband. May it bring your joy and happy memories.

I love your design, too. Very similar to 2 t-shirt/memory quilts I'm about to make for my niece and nephew in memory of their dad (my brother.) I'm so glad to see your design - it shows me my idea is going to work.

You have made a beautiful memory quilt to comfort you and those that loved him. I love these shadow blocks anyway but the name sure fits this project. Hubby's Shadow....

Has to be so nice to wrap up in memories! I like your pattern and color choices! My husband passed last year and my step-son took all of his clothes, I’m not sure why. After 20 years I have many memories, sewing is wonderful therapy!
