Every time I complete a T Shirt Memory Quilt I feel like I have given birth. I am the proud mother of this beautiful, new "baby".
This quilt is for a customer who lost her dad rather suddenly. She is going to give it to her mom for a Christmas present. It is rather poignant to work on a project that is like a memorial to someone. And to know that her mom will be wrapped in her husband's memories is comforting.
My customer sent along some extra shirts. I was inspired by a Martha Stewart craft I had seen. I made pillow covers for her. I thought it was a perfect addition to the T Shirt Blanket. She simply has to add a pillow form and button up the shirt! It's practical because it's easy to remove and wash, but also an additional memory.
