This year I received several requests for memorial t-shirt quilts, to celebrate the life of a loved one after their death. One client hired me to create a whole series of quilts and pillows for friends and family members to ease their mourning and preserve some cherished memories. It was a true privilege for me to work on these projects, as they were filled with emotional energy and value. My client was thrilled with the outcome, and said that all who were gifted with these momentos were deeply moved. The quilts below, in celebration of Alex, were all completed in blue and whites, as blue was his favorite color.
Another client approached me with a request to create a quilt for her mother, a former expert seamstress, who had suffered from a stroke. The quilt you see below used only fabric from garments she had made, from her "stash", and her t-shirts.
