She gave me a dozen of his shirts. A few other colleagues came to help. All were new to me and new to quilt-making. I wanted to cry most of the weekend. It felt like very important, sacred work.
Here's what we made. Pretty good for mostly new quilt makers!
I'll make the quilt back from the shirt backs, arranging them something like this.
From the scraps, I'll make quilts for her two teenage daughters as Christmas gifts.
Aren't you glad to have a skill that can provide such comfort? I'm feeling very fortunate today.
