You might have seen the label I posted a few days ago. Well, here is the quilt that goes with it. This was a memorial quilt made up of shirts from a much loved man who passed away. It is a gift from his kids to his wife for Christmas. Memorial shirt quilt ties

They gave me a couple of his ties and were hoping I could incorporate them somehow into the quilt. I wasn’t sure when I took them what I could do but I quickly realized that they’d look great just top stitched down on one of the plain shirt squares. men ties quilt

Take a look at the denim shirt block. I kept the pocket in tact so it is a functional pocket. I envision the adult children writing a little note to their mom and quietly putting it in there for her to find. I also positioned it so she could use it to pop her remote into when she is using the quilt snuggled up on the couch.

  1. I talked to Barbara Voll’s daughter, Debbie at church Sunday and she said her Mom absolutely loved the quilt you made from their Dad’s clothes.
    You made some people very, very happy.

    1. Thanks for letting me know! I’m so glad they were happy with the quilt. I think it turned out great and I really liked incorporating the ties into the quilt.
