Love and memories we impart
To quilt the fabric of the heart
For years I hauled around my youngest son’s old tshirts. I can’t help it, I’m a sentimentalist. Every shirt reminded me of his childhood. every stain was a reminder of happier times.
Making this quilt met several requirements. Firstly, it allowed me to get rid of clutter. Secondly, I was able to meet my very limited Christmas budget. Thirdly, I was able to temporarily calm my need to quilt all the things. Finally, I was able to wrap my now grown-up baby in warm memories.
Time and wear has made each shirt as soft as as a kitten’s ears so this quilt should be both warm and extra cozy. I didn’t worry too much about any stains or tears as they are all part of the story.
This little crossstich Gnome was the perfect accent for my bearded boy.
Merry Christmas CPRW ! I hope the quilt keeps you warm and dreaming happy dreams.
