Memory Quilt

Background, heart and hangers: Scrapbook Graphics Studio Girls, Heart First (The Digi Files 39); Title: SMG Halloween Alpha (recoloured); Font: Segoe Script.

I couldn't bring myself to get rid of some of my/our favourite t-shirts and when I did a sort through to make room for some new arrivals after Christmas I suddenly found I had 28 to work with. I ironed on lightweight interfacing and cut out 30cm squares, pieced them together and sewed them onto an old doona cover.  Yes, it's technically a quilt cover, rather than a quilt - that was more within my skillset and probably more practical for frequent washing for my boy.  I am really, really pleased with how it turned out.

Last month I happened upon this blog - about a family that has had so much to bear - and saw this beautiful quilt made with love (and t-shirts) for them. I hope it brings them comfort for many years to come.
