memory quilt ....

I don't very often share pix of quilts because I don't make them any more - just mini quilts or the occasional baby quilt.... although I still like trying out different quilt blocks.  When I was going through some older photos (as you'll see by the date) looking for something in particular I came across this memory quilt - well, sort of a memory quilt - maybe in memory of my fella's working days.  ^^ I made this from some of his old plaid shirts and there were enough to make a quilt to fit a queen bed for our cabin in the woods in British Columbia.    So I figured why not show you the quilt and voilà!  It now resides at our cabin in Manitoba.
By the way, do you see that lamp on the right - it's marble and belonged to my paternal grandmother - it's old - older than I - I still have it - it's a cherished memory of her.



start each day with a grateful heart

This quilt looks so great. And even better when it evokes memories. And how nice to have this lamp as a memory of your grandmother.

Glad you have that pretty quilt out where you can enjoy it, Kate! Lovely lamp, too--I still have a few of my grandma's possessions and they mean ever so much to me :)

The quilt looks wonderful! I would never have guessed plaid squares would look so great. I may have to make one. The lamp is lovely and how wonderful that you still have it and treasure it.
