this quilt brings back funny memories

I made this a long time ago for my mother in law. this is a quilt of her life. each square represents something. to the left is her yellow tabby Max the cat and the three are her three sons. the one on the right in cowboy boots is hubby who likes country music, the one in the baseball hat is my brother in law who passed away last year and the other one is their half brother.

love making quilts like this. Each square was designed by me. there are bears in a canoe to represent when they lived in ME, there was their dog, apple picking, a pictorial of their home in the mountains, a chicken when they raised chickens, a lighthouse to represent them living in Plymouth MA, etc.  it was fun. I like doing projects like that. I hunted for just the right apple basket material or the perfect stones or fall trees etc. fun fun! that's what creating is all about!

Very cute. I did a similar one for my in-laws many years ago. It was such a fun project.
