Quilts are for giving...a variation
Carol E. I cut them all into 2.5" strips and did a fence rail variation. Three fabrics for the rails, and then offset them with a strip added to the top or bottom, alternating. The other part of the variation is that this went to a semi-local 3 yr old girl who was having open heart surgery. A tiny little girl named Teagan. I heard she loved the Barbie fabrics. Thanks again for sharing Carol *VBS*
An offer was made to do a 'memory' quilt for the friend, using parts of Larry's shirts. Since neither DD, birth mom, or friend are quilters, what was sent was"interesting" to say the least. But I was determined to make it work. Everything in this double 4 patch was Larry's except the light blue and the border/binding. It is a tied quilt with a flannel backing.
And along that same line, sometime in this year, I will be making a memory quilt of T-shirts for my DD#1's best friend who lost her 14 yr old unexpectedly last year. She's not quite ready to let go of his clothes as yet, but she's very receptive to a snuggle quilt. I'm hoping it will feel like a hug from her little guy.
