This is one of the most wonderful parts of quilting I have is giving a gift that has great meaning to it's reciprocate. In this case it is the art quilt wall hanging I made in tribute to our dear friend, Jim, who died this summer. I made it for his daughter, Abby, shown here receiving the quilt. She wrote these words of appreciation to me:
Thank you SOOOOO much for my beautiful wall hanging that you made me! I love it so much. I can't tell you how much that means to me. That is one of the sweetest gifts I have ever been given and one that I will cherish always. I am so deeply touched that you put that together for me."
The quilt is made up of photos of our history with Jim, his history, and the use of his old Hawaiian shirts that he loved to wear. They are set off by the black broadcloth cotton background and top sewn free motion style.
More of this quilt can be seen in the post below this one.
