dolores’ quilts

I’m a lucky gal…because I get to do what I get to do.  and, for the past month or so that has been making four very special quilts for the four sons of a woman named dolores.  she passed away recently after a long battle and to remember her, her youngest son John, asked me to make the quilts for all the brothers out of her most precious clothes.

included in the quilts are christmas sweaters, a swimsuit, scarves, summer tank tops, cozy sweaters and even a flow-y top from a trip to vegas….and more than its fair share of memories.

thanks John for a great opportunity!  (please ignore my chaotic house in the background! yikes!)

    Thank you for helping me create a new family heirloom. I could not simply tossed all my mothers things into the charity bin when she loved all her things. There is also a piece of her wedding dress on each quilt and the backing is a lovely full size blanet cut in four that she used on her bed these past six months. They are simply beautiful.

      John! So glad to hear you like them so much! I had forgotten about the wedding dress (doh!) and the special blanket. The satin patch is from her wedding dress.
