    I made this throw quilt for Mom out of Pop's shirt. He passed away a year ago. I will be giving her the quilt tomorrow. I am anxious to give it ,but also kind of sad that it is finished.

    That is a beautiful and sweet quilt! I'm so sad your Pop passed away! I imagine it will kind feel like you're losing him again when you give this to your Mom. Will you be able to make one for yourself?

    I'm sure your Mom is going to love it!

    Sevencubs, that is very thouching. You did a beautiful job and I am sure your Mom will cherish it.
    I also have a quilt to make like this.....only it will be out of my sons clothing. He was 25 and passed away a year ago in Febuary. I have not been able to work on the quilt yet, but some day I hope to do it as beautifully as you did.

    SEVENCUBS , you did a beautiful job! You Mom will cherish it always for sure! I'm so sorry to hear you lost your father.

    joyful_noise I also sorry to hear about your son. I can't imagine what it's like to lose a child. My heart breaks for you. I do understand not being able to start his quilt, we lost my brother a year ago this past January 20th. I've harvested the fabric from his blue jeans, and the front of his favorite Harley T-shirt, but haven't yet been able to do anything with it. I take it out every now and again, look at it. Make plans for it, then put it back in the closet. If I ever get it done, it will go to his little grandson.

    My prayers for healing for both your families.

    Your mom is going to love it! It will touch her heart to have those memories sewn into a quilt. You made a very nice memory quilt!

    SEVENCUBS your gift of the quilt is the nicest design I have ever seen for such a project. I hope you make a few squares for a smaller quilt -- even preemie size -- so you'll have something to touch after you give Mom her quilt. My dad passed away seven years ago this month and I made flannel quilts incorporating a few of his shirts. I smile whenever I see certain plaids. This is very comforting.

    Piecefully yours,
    Kay Susan

    jbsstrawberry, thank you for your kind words. I am sorry for your loss as well. I'm sure you miss your brother very much.
    I have not yet gotten the cloths from my daughter in law. I'm hoping she will be able to turn loose of them. She just sold his car a few weeks ago. I am waiting for her to give them to me but I will probably be like you are and not be able to do it for a while. I'm hoping to be able to get two quilts out of the shirts as he has two daughters. They are still very young, but I hope to be able to give them each a quilt made out of their fathers clothing when they get old enough to know what it means.
    Let me know how yours turns out when you get it done. :-) :)

    What a loving tribute to your Dad. Your Mom will cry, but it wll give her so much comfort. I sure it gave you a lot of comfort working on it and remembering memories of your Dad wearing them. You are such a good daughter, I'm sure your Dad will be watching over when you give it to your MOM. Beautiful job.

    That has got to be the best gift one could receive--and make. She will feel loved by you, and wrapped in his arms.

    You are terrific.

    joyful-noise, and Lisa, loosing a loved one is so hurtful. I do think loosing a son would very hard!! But do make the quilts, and yes, if you are like me the quilt will be spladdered with tears but it helped the hurt!
    Here's Mom

    my sweet mom

    I love this idea! I lost my mom 5 years ago in sept. and it seems like yesterday. I don't have many of her clothes but I would like to do one with her pics some day. I have a whole cork board full of pics on my wall that I done for her funeral. I even decorate it with bows and garland at Christmas.

    Thanks for showing the quilt. I am holding my "PopS" shirts to make a quilt. I told my mom I would let her decide what she wanted me to make but it has been about six months now and she just has trouble thinking of it. So I like yours. Maybe I will do something like that, except his shirts are not plaid. They are solid but with all kinds of designs. I forget what they are called but they are beautiful. Old cuban style shirts I believe. Maybe I will do a picture and see if anyone has ideas. Again thanks for posting your quilt. Good Idea!

    sevencubs, Ahhhhh ! That is so awesome. You can see in her eyes that she absolutely loves it. I know it must have been hard for you to give it up, but the look on your moms face is priceless. Bless you :wink:
