Quilting memories

facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

This is something for all those who have lost someone they love, or who know someone who has lost someone.

I have an elderly neighbor, who does quilting for family members. She told me the other day, that she is quilting a ‘throw’ for a relative who lost her husband recently, and brought some of his clothes to her, to make into a small quilt.

I thought, ‘how wonderful! what a warm, enduring way to cherish a loved one’s’ clothes that they loved!’

Another friend, said I should share this with the readers of the ‘Miner’, so they could take advantage of this idea, if they wanted to preserve a loved one’s’ clothes. Instead of giving away most of their things, why not make a ‘Memory Quilt’? The idea of always having it around, to show others, and to wrap themselves in it, could be a most comforting way to remember the one they loved.

If you know someone who quilts, all the better. If not, maybe someone else knows someone who does quilting.
