    Great quilt and a super example of what quilts can do for our hearts. God bless you and Leopold... he looks like he won't let anything happen to you or the quilt!

    Wonderful quilt, simple design, yet very elegant with those borders. The kitty was sent there to comfort you. I bet Larry would have loved sleeping with you under that quilt. Blessings to you.

    This is exactly what I was thinking. So I guess you took the words right out of my mouth. Beautiful tribute and beautiful quilt.

    Pauline,
    So sorry for your loss, but you have made a beautiful treasure to help keep the memories alive. Leopold looks like he loves it, too. Our little furbabies are such a comfort. It seems they know exactly what we are going through.

    My furbaby came to our door more than 13 years ago. Vet said he was about 2 at the the time. He is such comfort.

    Thats really a pretty quilt. My husband passed 18 years ago and I still have his western shirts I have kept for a quilt. Now I am thinking of making my 2 daughters and son a lap quilt with them. Know they would love it.

    Pauline, bless your heart. I will be making one from my husband's shirts. I don't know when or the pattern, but will make it and will remember the good times. Thanks for sharing your heartfelt story.

    What a great story and a beautiful quilt! I have to ask, having had so many of these plaid shirts in my life when I was married....did he only wear blues or did you save the other colors for another quilt? My ex had shirts that were predominately browns, greens, reds, etc. in addition to all of the blues.

    In our earlier years the colors of his shirts varied to mulitcolored stripes, pink, neutrals but in the later years they were mostly blue because I bought most of his shirts and blues were my favorite. He never complained.
