The Love of my Life Shirt Quilt!

I love meeting quilters and hearing their stories.  I met Mary at a quilt guild meeting, she is in her eighty’s.  She came right up to me and asked if I could quilt a king size and I told her I could.  She went on to tell me that her husband had passed away and she cut his shirts into large squares and sewed them back together to make a quilt.  She said she was working on her Bucket list!  How precious is that for her legacy.  We talked about binding and I suggested the extra shirt fabric.  Mary brought back the binding and I was able to attach the binding to the quilt on the long arm machine.  She decided to hand sew the binding to the back, and she will attach a label so this special quilt will be enjoyed for generations.  She called the quilt, “The Love of my Life Shirt Quilt!”
