Memory Quilt

I just finished the binding yesterday on this very special quilt.  It is a memory quilt made for young man named James.  James is almost 8 and the quilt is made from shirts that belonged to his father. 

James' grandmother contacted me some time ago to see if I would make the quilt for James.  His dad died from cancer when James was just a baby.  It seems that James decided he needed something that belonged to his daddy and his grandmother thought of a quilt.  I met with James and his mom.  James selected the shirts and I constructed the quilt top.  James and his mom went shopping and bought a black fabric for the back of the quilt. 

I will be delivering the quilt this week and hope James finds comfort when he cuddles in this "Special Quilt".

Oh my gosh Pam! The quilt is absolutely gorgeous! And the story behind it. I'm crying now. So touching, so heartbreaking. I know that the little guy will love it. Will be like his daddy wrapping his love around him and keeping him warm and safe. Such a wonderful thing you have done. God bless! Tammy

What a treasure and a perfect remembrance of his father. I'm sure that James will have this his entire life and then pass it on to his own children. What a wonderful thing for you to do for their family. Beautiful!
