His family has kept his clothing in a box and finally decided it was time to have a keepsake made from the clothes. There are 72 blocks and I tried to select a portion of the clothing that showed wear, stains or other testaments to the life of a typical toddler.
Instead of plain fabric for the backing, I pieced together the baby blankets so the entire quilt could be made as much as possible from the belongings of this baby boy.
I got an email a few days after Christmas from the dad and he thanked me for working on this memorial quilt for him. He said his wife loved it and that made my day!
