"In Memory of Tom" from Pamela Windspirit

Tom and his wife were our next door neighbors.  Tom passed away from cancer after a long illness.  I asked his wife, Pat, if she would like a memory quilt.  We sat down and selected pictures of him and I printed them out on fabric.  It took me a long time to decide on the fabrics to use that would best reflect Tom (who loved to fish) and the pictures, but I was finally able to present his wife with the finished quilt.

Pamela,

That is a nice quilt.  You did a great job.  I'm sure Tom's wife was pleased.  What a wonderful way to memorialize Tom.  The colors are perfect.  Thanks for sharing.

What a gifted quilter you are, and to be able to present your neighbor with such a gift, makes you truly amazing.  This quilt will be cherished forever with the memories of Tom in the days that he wasn't so sick.

What a beautiful memory quilt!  Did he like to play cards! Since you used "card tricks" in the pattern.

Wonderful colors in the quilt.  Love it as I'm sure your neighbor did, too.

That is a beautiful quilt.  I know your friend will cherish it and wrap herself up in it on days she is missing.  I know because my husband died 1-1/2 years ago and I'm currently working on a t-shirt quilt of all his t-shirts.  I'm looking forward to wrapping myself up in it once in a while.  You are a good friend, Pamela.

Pamela,

What a beautiful gift you made for a special friend of yours.  I applaud you in so many many ways.  It is difficult to lose friends and family.  I am truly sorry for your loss but hope that you can take solace from the wonderful gift you gave them.  Each time they look at your quilt they will look with a smile on their faces.  Thank you for being such a caring woman.  It is a great quilt and very very beautiful.
