Mom was sick for about 4 years before she past two years ago in October.  I made this quilt, (my second one) out of nightgowns of hers.  My sister cut the material and i stitched.  This is the first time i have ever used store baught binding but i thought it was simple enough to use and it looked ok when it was finished.  My Dad wont care how it looks he will cry no matter how it looks. The sentiment at the corner reads "May Mom's Love keep you warm still"

Annette,

Thank you for sharing your quilt.  My mother died 6 years ago from Alzheimer's and I've kept her things boxed in the closet of my sewing room since.  Off and on, I've thought about a quilt from her "housecoats."  She had won several blue ribbons at the Tennessee State Fair for her quilts, so I think she would approve.  I'm sure your mom is pleased too.

What a beautiful quilt to give to your father. I wish I had saved clothing from my parents and I would treasure a quilt in their memory. I will someday make one with old photos.

This is beautiful and a wonderful memory.

Thank you for all of your heartfelt comments, my sister said she cried the whole time she was cutting, but by the time i got the material Mom's scent was gone. It was a memorable project to work on.
