This quilt was sent to me by Sally Carlson, and I was touched by the story behind it. It was made for two little girls, whose father had recently passed away. They had seven shirts to work with, and they tried to use every scrap of them in one way or another. The quilt pattern is "Yellow Brick Road" from Atkinson Designs. A little decorative stitching was added on a few blocks to make the quilt a bit more girly.
The back of the quilts is beautiful as well. Each girl was given a quilt and a pillow (made from a collar and the leftover scraps of the shirts). Can you think of a better reason to make a quilt? What a treasure for those little girls.
