It’s been nearly six months since I lost my dad. I brought home a bag of about 30 of his shirts after the funeral. I’ve looked at the bag a few times, but haven’t been able to open it until this past week. I didn’t want to then, but I haven’t been able to think of anything else to give my mom for Christmas, except for a quilt. With the first snip of the scissors, the tears came.
And then this sweet girl jumped up to sit with me.
It took hours to cut apart all those shirts, but she never left my side until the last one was done.
Then she wandered off to play. It was like she knew I needed her and knew when the job was done. She is just the sweetest dog ever.
I decided to use the sleeves for this quilt, so I layered them up, pressing as I went.
I used this die and my Accuquilt die cutter.
Here are my piles of rectangles.
Time to design.
Have a great day.
