I really got to know this mom through the stories of her when she brought me her clothes for a memory quilt. She loved to fish so I was sure to use a fishing pattern. Her favorite colors were teal and purple, and I found a terrific purple fabric for the border and backing. Her favorite piece of clothing was a flowered dress, so I used it for the large center block, scattered smaller blocks and the inner border.
Below is a quote from the daughter after she picked up the quilt. This makes all the work of making a memory quilt worth it.
“My dad LOVES his quilt. We all did. Thank you for the thoughtfulness you put into the quilt capturing the precious memories of my mom. ❤️ “
