    This was supposed to be a Christmas gift, but I didn't like the quilting and had to rip it out and redo, lol. It's my version of a memory quilt, but instead of pictures, I embroidered the quilt blocks with memories I have of us together. She has MS and is always cold, so I backed it with fleece to make it warmer.

    The whole quilt

    GREAT!!! I am sure that it will be more than cherished! Awesome job, to bad to had to rip it out and do again, I'm guessing you did the quilting the second time? Whoever did it did a beautiful job!!! Like the "memories" written instead of pics, makes it a little different.

    Your quilt and your memories held on it are beautiful, what a wonderful gift for your Aunt. I was very touched when I read the blocks.
