Attached are two pictures of the quilts I made after Mom passed away.
Debra, Ontario Canada

I made this wall quilt for my brother John using photos printed to fabric and pieces of Mom's clothes. John is in level 4 care, and isn't allowed a lap quilt.

I made 5 identical lap quilts using Mom's clothes for the blocks. The names of the blocks represent different aspects of Mom's life.

These are very nice, and I'm sure they are truly appreciated by those who received them.

Those are just lovely Debra. You're mother was a beautiful woman. Such a thoughtful thing for you to do to keep her memory alive. :)

What a lovely way to remember your Mum,so very special. Did you make the 5 quilts for your siblings. I made a memorial quilt for my grandmother when she passed away and it bought me some measure of peace. I hope making those quilts for your Mum did the same for you.

Thank you both. They were very well received by my sister and brothers. I even kept on for myself. LOL They only way I could do them, was to do them all at once. It actually went faster then I expected once I got started. When I am feeling down, I just curl up under mine until I feel better.

Aww that's wonderful Debra. I feel the same way every time I use my mom's old machine. I remember her making my clothes on that machine, and now I make memories with my quilts on it.

I did make one quilt for a sister using a piece or two of my mom and dad's clothing. It means the world to her.

Isn't it amazing how much our parents mean to us? I mean, growing up we take them for granted (normal), and even more normal, can't wait to get out of the house. But when I don't see them, I miss them.

I hope I can get around to doing that before they're gone and can appreciate what it means to me and them. (If any of that made sense!) I also hope mine will be half as nice as yours!

The quilts are just beautiful and your mother was a beautiful woman, too.
