Default Such A Lady!

After the passing of Lady, our oldest was soon heading off to college. Our youngest was having a hard time with the lose of Lady's passing and his brothers leaving home. We decide to make a memory quilt of Lady! Our son picked the photo and fabrics and I made a pattern. Everyday when Ronald got off the bus he would run in to work on Lady's quilt.It was a incredible way for him to work through his lose and grief. We would laugh and cry while talking of the memories of her!

There are over 500 One-inch squares.

Beautiful! Sorry for your loss. Our sweet Susie has been gone almost 10 years and we still miss her so much.

This looks incredibley like your Lady. Do I understand that you made the pattern but that your son did the work when he got off the bus from School? If he did then he did a spectacular job and a great tribute to a special member of the family.

I am so sorry for your loss. Beautiful quilt! You son made it? Whoever made it did an excellent job and what a wonderful way to work through the grief. No, not only will she be in your hearts forever, but in your home as well.
