Good for you to help her out. She will treasure this and bring back memories of her grandmother.
You Rock! This is very special and I would cry too!
You just made the memories more precious!! The quilt could not have been made any better by an experienced memory quilt maker.
Brilliant work Angie, I'd cry too if I had been given it. The memories we carry are so important. Great effort, love Chris
If you had said I've been making memory quilts for 20 years, I'd have believed it! What a great job you did. It's no wonder she was brought to tears.
Flatterer but thank you 😊😘
Oh my! I can see why the owner was brought to tears. You might have been given very little info but what a great result. And a great fix using the tags too.
Wow, great job. So much better to enjoy them this way than keeping them in a bag. No wonder the owner was in tears.
Great job! I know several people who would love one just like it. Hugs. Nan
This is great. It’s lovely to see how a project like this just grows while your working on it. I’m sure that the recipient was delighted and what a great memory. It’s also great the way family members happily volunteer us to do work like this.
wow, what a great job you did !!!! compliments to you and I can imagine the owner was so happy, it's wonderful 👍👍👍
Great job.... I made T-shirt quilts for my niece and nephew from the shirts they had accumulated on an 18 month world tour that their parents took them on when they were 11 and 13 years old, just days after September 11, 2001... most of the family thought they were crazy, but they went anyway....
Good for them. That must have been a awesome trip and their ages were perfect for that.
BTW After I had the squares assembled I found a small hole in one of them. So I took the tag from the back of a shirt and covered the hole with it. Looked a bit silly till I scattered a few more across the quilt.
You did a good job A. I like working like that, the deadline gone so no rush-lol- Great having that sheet for the back too. No telling how much the sheets cost but prefect for this quilt top. This is my son's ride.
I want to ask if you stabilized each shirt and if so which kind did you use? I was asked before to make some & so far have declined. It will be something I try, one day.
Yes toogie I stabilized each one first with a fusible stabilizer. Pellon p44F. The stabilizer stops the material from stretching. Honestly I went on YouTube once I knew that I was volontiert for the quilt. Learned a lot about it.
