I have been check out other quilting blogs and one I love is Marylou Weidman's.
She has such a way with making memories into fun and whimsical designs, so I thought it would be fun to start thinking of making my own memory quilt. I have an old picture of my son when he was little and I think it would be a great start for my first block. Maybe I might even make one with memories of him and one with my daughter. They will be works in progress that I can finish and give to them in the future.
Memories do make me sad though, he was such a sweet boy and now he is going to be 28 in March. Time sure flies by as you get older. This will be the idea for my first block. I will be working it in a primitive, folk art style, so we shall see what I come up with.
