making a Memory Quilt

I had to put stabilizer on the "body" fleece is not the easiest to sew
it went a lot easier and fast once I did that.

Making a memory quilt for Nicky and Eric

I was ready to make a different block;... when my quilting magazine arrived and there it was;... the quilt that I had in mind but DIDN'T know it.

making a quilt for Kendall

I cried the first time I cut into them, and I cried more a few more times while I was sewing. We miss her so much.

making a quilt for Kendall

Kendall's parents ( Erick and Niky) entrusted me with 6 of her PJ's (Fleece) so I can make a MEMORY quilt. for them. It took me a while to decided on the pattern to use, that or I was really hesitant to cut in to the PJ's.


Last year we lost Kendall, a big tragedy, she was my Grandson cousin one year older than him.She was only 3 years old.
