    Default Memorial quilt for MIL

    When my MIL past away after a lingering illness, I was just starting quilting and felt a desire to commemorate her and comfort my FIL with a quilt.

    I took my design inspiration from a family story of devotion. My MIL loved to sit in their backyard and look at their lovely garden. When her health started declining, she became housebound, and then bed-bound, my FIL planted a climbing rose bush outside the window next to her bed, so she could still see flowers growing the garden.

    I found this pattern that reminded me of the white lattice that climbing roses grow on, and tried my hand making my second quilt ever (Squares on Point - oof!). It was my first time trying FMQ. Learned so much on this project and it was well received.

    What a wonderful tribute. Beautiful quilt.
    One yard of fabric, like one cookie, is never enough!

    Such a thoughtful tribute. I wish my first FMQ had looked that good.

    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.
