Three years ago my good friend Chrisann's mother (Karen) died of Multiple Myeloma. I don't have to tell you that this was heart breaking for Chrisann and her family.
Earlier this year, Chrisann asked me if I might be able to make quilts from her mom's clothes. Chrisann and her siblings thought that a quilt out of her clothes would be the perfect Christmas present for their dad.
Chrisann and her sister went to her parents home and picked out some clothes that went well together. As fate would have it, Karen had mostly red, white and blue clothes :)
Karen also loved her designer clothes. I saved the tags from the clothes and put them here and there on the quilt.
I was thinking this quilt looked a little Ralph Lauren ;D
For the backing, we used a navy minky, super soft and cuddly :)
It was very interesting to make this quilt. VERY emotional!
I was surprised at how hard it was to cut into Karen's clothes. Karen was very loved by her family and she loved them so very much as well.
Hopefully this quilt will provide a little snugly comfort.
