I have made several types of memory quilts and they are wonderful for any occasion. This next one is for a friend with Dementia and it is used to help her remember who members of her family are. Sometimes if we … Continue reading Want to Savor Memories?

I have been thinking a lot of the first few quilts I made. I thought here I have been sewing all my life, so what is the big deal about quilting? The first quilt was just alternating squares and I embroidered randomly on it. Easy….Hahaha. I learned the lesson of NEVER say “easy peasy”. My next quilt was for my son. I went to the … Continue reading Throw back Thursday
