It’s week 5 of our T-Shirt Quilt Sewalong! Time stitch together those rows you sewed last week and finish your quilt top.
Here’s a look at at how the original “adventure bag” has evolved over the past 2 1/2 years and a peek at the latest version designed by my 9 year old.
I had been diligently storing away even the smallest pieces of this keepsake memory project so there would be nothing left to discard at the end.
Memorial projects are incredibly special to me. I love hearing stories about the person’s life and keep them in the forefront of my mind as I cut and sew, doing my best to incorporate bits and pieces of who they were into the design. My goal is always to create a piece that can be a tangible reminder of a beautiful person whose memory lives on in the hearts of those who loved him or her. Here is a peek at my process.
We can all “be the change” in different ways. Mine is through sewing, living slowly, and loving my family. And it’s a work in progress. Every day.
