Seventeen little quilts later....I am finished sewing Hug Rugs in memory of my mother. It has been a very theraputic exercise...there are still her white hairs on the fleece jackets that became little birds...watching the birds feasting in the birdfeeder at her window was such a joy to Mom. There are buttons and pockets ~ which could be complete with tissues and toothpicks! Every square holds a memory.
Its 6 months now since Mom died, and I have such peace, knowing she is at peace. So this is MY memory quilt. I backed it with the butterfly fleece that mom used, so I made it a little bigger with an extra boarder to fit. I use it on my bed.
Its been really good working with all Mom's clothes, but I am also really glad to be finished.
