Order a Custom Quilt Inspired By ' Comfort in a Small Quilt '
A friend's father passed recently and she struggles with missing him and spending time with him. So her brother came up with the idea of sharing a part of their father's memory with her. He brought me 2 of their father's favorite shirts and said, "Can you create something small, just something to cover her lap? Her favorite color is green."
So we set forth with the task of being creative and using the fabrics from 2 shirts and adding some green to create a quilt. The simple star points of the design worked perfect for the fabrics we used and we stitched a theme of bibles, doves and crosses to represent their faith in Jesus Christ for the quilting.
We kept it a secret, though it was hard because I wanted to tell my friend about our progress. But mums the word.
Here's the story from my friend about Christmas morning.
"I have not been one that looks forward to getting gifts for Christmas or for any holiday for that matter, however, I LOVE to give gifts! This Christmas when asked what I wanted for Christmas I would say, "I just want everyone together." My brother, who lives 7 hours away from me kept telling me he had the perfect gift for me, and I kept telling him I didn't need anything other than my family. You see, my mom passed away 4 years ago and my dad passed in February, my brother has become even more special to me because we have endured the loss of our parents, together even though miles separate us.
