    That is beautiful. I love the blues. It must have been a favorite color of shirt. Your design looks great.

    I am so sorry to hear of your loss. How brave you are to keep moving forward and make that fabulous quilt. Your cat looks exactly the way I would picture a Leopold!

    Be sure to put your story in print, hopefully on the back of the quilt. I can feel your love coming through. Larry is with you and Leopold. Sleep comfortably.

    Hi Pauline, Larry's quilt is lovely. I am so sorry for your loss, sadly I lost my dh too in 08 and I made a quilt out of his shirts and jeans and gave one to each of the 5 kids and kept one for myself, I feel really close to David and it will always be on my bed. I hope this quilt gives you hours and hours of comfort. The cat is beautiful too

    I don't know what it is about quilts made from old shirts but they have a certain charm. I'm one of those folks, if you don't wear it, you toss it. Now, I wish I hadn't tossed so much, I would have loved a quilt out of my Dad's shirt and he had a zillion of them. Your quilt is so nice. What size are your 9 patches?

    Lovely! Leopold looks like he really understands your feelings. Aren't we lucky to have angels?

    What a beautiful memory for you. You can look at the prints and remember what he was doing while wearing the shirts. Love the quilt.

    I am so sorry for you loss. I am sure the Leopold brings you comfort and every night you receive a hug from Larry. What a marvelous feeling that must be.

    What a great tribute to Larry. I know you will cherish it. You did a very nice job. And I'm glad Leopold was sent to you for your time of need. I am glad you have comfort in the Larry quilt.
