Windmill Bereavement Quilt

In the last post (above), I showed a full-sized bed quilt that I made for Lisanna out of her dad’s clothes. That ribbon quilt was for Lisanna to use when she grows up and sleeps in a regular sized bed.  Her mother and I agreed that she needed a smaller quilt for herself now (she is 7 years old), so I made up this pattern for her out of just three shirts (a white, a red checked, and a gray plaid).  Lisanna loves to dance, and I thought the little windmill depicted movement.

Note that a swirl pattern was used for the quilting – again showing movement.

Her mom sent me this wonderful picture of Lisanna’s joy when she got the two quilts (and Lucas with his – see previous posts).
