    I just finished a memory quilt for a man who wanted to have a bed quilt using his mother's clothes in it. I will be presenting it to him next week. I hope he likes it!

    You did a really nice job on it! Is that a picture of the man in the lower right corner, and the mother in the middle?

    There is a small picture of the man and his mother in the center of the quilt. On the bottom, middle there is a picture of just his mother. The man on the bottom, right, is Johnny Cash. who was one of her favorite singers.

    No he hasn't seen it. In fact, he doesn't even know that I have pictures on it. It will all be a surprise for him. Since I've only meet him once, and never meet his mother, I worry about how he will like it. I'll let you know.

    Thank you all for the encouragement and nice thoughts. It was a challenge and a work of love making it. I feel a bit more secure in showing it to him now that I know that others like it. Thanks again to all of you!

    He will love it. I would love to make something along that line in memory of my momma. I miss her so much.
