In the previous blog, I discussed log cabin bereavement quilts made from a young man’s cotton shirts and trousers. Cheryl’s husband Eric took pride in his clothes, but he was also a laid-back guy who had a great t-shirt collection. I suggested making smaller throws for everyone out of the t-shirts, since every child needs a throw of their own for snuggling and the large log cabin quilts are a bit too big for that.
Each girl chose special t-shirts to go in their respective quilts. Below is Lizzy’s t-shirt quilt:
Eric had a special t-shirt quilt featuring a figure skating which Chloe chose for her quilt, shown below:
I love to get pictures from my customers showing them with their quilts. Below both Lizzy and Chloe show off their quilts.

Eric had a nephew that was very close to him and whom Cheryl realized also “needed a quilt” – so a seventh quilt was made for Joey. It features a picture of Eric in its center and uses a number of the backs of the t-shirts in the girl’s quilts.
