Memory Quilt for Angela Made From Her Husband, Matt's Clothing

Here are the finished pictures of a memory quilt that I made for Angela from her husband, Matt's clothing. 

Matt passed away and before he did, he had asked me if I would make Angela a quilt from his clothing.

I used his t shirts, a Halloween costume, jeans, shorts, and some other articles of clothing that were obviously very well loved by Matt. :) 

It was my pleasure to make this for her and I hope it gives her comfort as time goes on.

Memory Quilt Made From Ties, Shirts, Pants, etc.

I recently made this quilt for my friend Josephine's mother, Berkely, 
after her husband passed away. 
I made this quilt using some of Ken's ties, shirts, pants, etc.
I especially loved that a bunch of Ken's shirts had his monogram on them 
which I was able to save and incorporate into the quilt.
There was also a shirt that Ken had written his last name on, 
which I thought was extra special. 
I hope this quilt gives Berkeley much comfort when she's missing Ken. :)

Memory Quilt for Ange :)

This is the beginning stages for a special memory quilt that I promised a 
friend of mine from high school, 
that I would make his wife, 
before he passed away.

Sadly, Matt passed away before I could get it made for her. 

It's been in my que since last October so it's about time I get to it!

Ange gave me lots of Matt's favorite T-shirts to work with from his company, as well as his jeans and other articles of clothing. 

So stay tuned for progress...

Well hello everyone!!
After a long baby break, I'm back!
Well kind of... slow and steady... ;)
I wanted to pop up some pics of my latest custom project for a family in NYC.
They sent me some great textiles including some curtains 
(Peter Rabbit and some funky patterned ones), 
some baby rompers, their mother's beautiful vintage silk wedding dress (in a powder blue color) 
and a t shirt! 
We've been laying out and reworking this beauty to make it 
just perfect for them to give to their mother!
Here are some pics in progress!

This is a quilt I just finished today from the cutest infant clothing and onesies belonging to 
my friend Ali's son, Corwin, who just turned two!
