A Very Special Christmas Quilt

Amanda is shown here proudly displaying a very special Christmas quilt that I made for her so that she could surprise her family with a memory quilt made from her father's shirts. The quilt top is made from the sleeves and fronts of the shirts and the back is made from the shirt backs. The binding is also made from assorted strips cut from the shirts.

This is the label that has been stitched onto the back of the quilt so that the purpose and the special meaning of this quilt will be documented for friends and family. This quilt will be treasured for many years to come.


  1. Thank you so much for your tireless efforts and generosity, Rosemary. I can't wait to surprise everyone Christmas morning. I will send pictures of my nephew snuggling beneath it as soon as I can.

    Happy holidays and season's blessings.

  2. Dear Rosemary, I am at a loss for words in trying to express my appreciation for your beautiful blanket-I will treasure it always, and it will be passed on to other generations in memory of a very special person. Your talent takes my breath away, thank you so much. Wishing you all the blessings of the new year, Carol Larsen (Amanda's mom)

  3. You are very welcome. It was very rewarding for me also to be able to make this special memory quilt come to reality. I hope that it will be treasured and bring your family comfort and enjoyment for many years to come.
