Sweet Remembrance Quilt

I have just finished a memory quilt for a special new little girl. Her grandfather was loved by so many people in our town.  He passed away last year. A good friend of his daughter asked me to make a memory quilt from some of his shirts.

Once I had the shirts cut up, I realized they were too plain and I needed something girlie to make it “Shabby Chic” which was the mom’s request. So, I found this great pink floral pattern.

Once I had the quilt pieced together, I needed something more so it wouldn’t look so plain. I decided to add the hearts, one for the grandfather, one for the daughter and one for the baby.

I made the back out of left over fabric and shirt material and used the rose print for the binding.

Finally, I added some tabs so it could be hung on a curtain rod.

Here is the quilt all ready for the new baby girl!!
