My mother-in-law, June, passed away last weekend. She was a very kind woman who raised four responsible, caring children. She enjoyed being with her family, fishing and contemporary design. Here are two quilts I made for her.
This one, made in 2006, features a block pattern from the Chicago World's Fair in the 1930's. The Chicago area is where June lived for much of her life.
The tag shows a photo of me quilting the quilt.
June loved Marimeko fabrics. I picked up this fabric for her at the Marimeko store in Helsinki a few years ago, and quilted it very simply.
I'm told she was wearing this quilt during her final hours. I'm so pleased that I could express my love for her with these quilts. Aren't we quilters fortunate in this way?
