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".
