T-Shirt Quilts For a Lifetime of Memories

! Thanks to Grandma, I now can give back to others with my talents, she gentled seeded so many years ago. None gives me greater pleasure than to do memory t-shirt quilts, as I did for the Mom and step-father of one of my former students, Troy, who was taken from all of us too early in life. As I sat and cut, measured, sewed, and gently hand quilted each t-shirt of his life, I too recalled his many days in my classroom. “Quilts are like friend, a great source of comfort.”

Hand-stitching names and images or doing fabric crafts have always been one of my favorite pastimes. But as the popularity of the home embroidery machine opened new possibilities, and I could save time and effort while still allowing artistic flair in choices of pattern, size, position and color, my sites were set on owning one of the newest of the embroidery machines on the market. Looking at the home budget or my profits earned from the sales of the baby quilts that was not in cards.
