January Winner! Anita from Virginia (USA) 2

Our first winner was Anita, in January. Anita's story is pretty special and really resonated within the #QMCommunity. Anita received a ton of comments, shares, encouragement and affection for her project. Here is her story:

 

Memory Quilt

 

"This is a memory quilt made for my Cousin from her deceased husband’s clothing. He was a farmer in rural Kentucky and loved his tractors. I pieced the tractors out of his old shirts, and placed the tractors on a dirt road horizontal sashing and trees in the vertical sashing. I added billowing blue cloud fabric for the sky. I sew because I love knowing that when I make a memory quilt, it becomes a tangible item to snuggle under and be reminded of those we love. I enjoy reliving memories from every shirt I cut and sew and telling those stories when I deliver the quilt. I have been sewing since childhood, now 52. I was able to take it up full time again about 7 years ago and love every minute of it."

 

Thank you for sharing Anita, and congratulations!
