I asked Rosie to make a memory quilt with my late husband's ties for my daughter on the occasion of her wedding. I am thrilled with the result. She created both a meaningful memento with which my daughter can remember her father, but also a unique objet d'art, beautiful in its own right. I gave her a pile of ties, and she promptly put together some mock-ups of her ideas and emailed them to me. After considering several possibilities, we agreed on a design. I picked out a quote from a poem my daughter wrote for her father's birthday, which turned out to be his last. She embroidered the quote in the center of the quilt and added a lovely image of a mountain and a crane, which perfectly complemented the quote.
"It was wonderful to work with Rosie. She provided ideas and suggestions, then patiently took the time to help me fine-tune my wishes for the final version of the design. She is an artist, but also a deeply sensitive and spiritual individual. I felt an immediate bond with her, and she seemed to know intuitively what I had in mind."
