    I started this quilt right after my dad passed away. I was making it for a family member but when it was done I realized WHAT I had done....all my tears and thoughts of my dad were in in every stitch. The label says : Remembering Daddy ~ Love Sis..with the date. I will never be able to part with it. =)

    Ronna, so sorry for your loss. The quilt is gorgeous - just glows. I wouldn't be able to part with it either ... it's ok to treat yourself.

    Beautiful! I totally relate to what you are saying. I had just finished my first quilting class when I lost my father this past July and honestly, I think it is what has made the last three months tolerable. Of course the wonderful people on the board here have helped too :D Thank you for sharing such a wonderful piece.

    its not easy losing a loved one and making the quilt probably helped you while you grieved and it is great that you are keeping it for yourself. Not only is it a beautiful quilt but it also has special meaning just for you..priceless... as they say time is a great healer and when you wrap yourself in that quilt you will remember all the special times with your dad.

    My dad kept very little clothes...he was just that way. But I want to make my mom a memory quilt out of his shirts and pants. He kept a printed cheat quilt on his bed and I'll use that for the backing and his sheets for the middle. That way its all him. Thats really going to be a hard one to do....but its for my mom. Thank you everyone for the kind comments. I appreciate them very much.
