Tree of Life Bereavement Quilt made from Chef Outfits
The bereavement quilt above is shown under Bereavement Quilts (Picture Quilts) and was made for a mother out of her daughter’s chef outfits. The daughter had a similar depiction of the tree of life tattooed on her body, and it was a very meaningful symbol to both mother and daughter.
Quilt for Dan and Cynthia
The most joyous of all quilts are wedding quilts. This is the second quilt I made for my son Dan, my oldest son of four. Years ago I made a quilt for him out of material I had saved from making shirts for my four boys. Young Dan gave it away to a girlfriend with whom he had just broken up – a kind gesture – but since we never saw her again, I wasn’t pleased. More recently I was happy to give him and his new bride this quilt, but I made Cynthia promise not to leave him. Losing another quilt would have just been too much.
