Memory Quilts

I have made many quilts that are not even photographed and you have forgotten where they all actually went to in the mail or via a hug. I sometimes see one of my quilts by surprise and its like meeting an old friend.

I have great memories of each quilt, I can remember all the little issues or joy of discovery in each one, sometimes you spend only a few hours with each one or sometimes its many days, weeks or months to their completion.
Enjoy a sampling of some quilts I've made, given away and some were commissions too. I still take commissions on making memory quilts, as they are my favorite. Its a personal journey to use a persons clothing into a quilt. Each one is lovingly worked on with mindful fingers, needles and thread.
