…bringing those members of our lives we have loved and have lost back into our lives by recalling their influence and the impact of their life on ours.
I contacted my friend, Kathy, last Spring because I found the bag of her late husband’s shirts safely tucked away in a container. The day I let Kathy know the shirts were located I was surprised to learn it was John’s Birthday! How ironic! She said she just had to smile! I really like when those kinds of serendipitous events happen!
The joy of quilting meaningful projects covers all aspects of life from birth, to birthdays, to graduations, to marriages, to the loss of a loved one. I like making memory quilts for people to have a tactile reminder of comfort of their loved one.
I am enjoying this project, because most of the shirt labels say they were made from the different Islands of Hawaii. The material is very soft, light, and playful to work with.
I have another memory quilt to show you later this week!
Blessings to you as re-MEMBER, or recall, re-piece, and put together in your heart those you have loved and those you have been influenced by in your life today!
