Memorial Quilt

 I recently received an email from Sue and Gene Greer about the memorial quilt. For those of you who don't know the back story, you might want to check out this previous post and the interesting synchronicity involved.

One side is covered with the veteran's favorite t-shirts (see photo above).

The other side has the flag received by his widow along with many of his favorite hats, that were deconstructed by Sue and Gene.

Gene is in the process of quilting words onto the front of the quilt. It will soon be finished.

I can only imagine what it will be like when the widow gets to see the result...all those memories to wrap around herself. Hopefully, it will be a great comfort in many ways.


  1. Sitting here with tears flowing freely at the sight of this wonderful quilt. Many thanks to Sue and Gene for creating these...not sure I could without being in tears the whole time. What they're doing is...well, it is.

    1. Hi Jennifer-
      Sue and Gene are the most amazing and generous couple! I've had them in two of my classes and I love how committed they are to creating these "labors of love". I agree that there is a part of me that would find it hard to do the work they do...but at the same know that you are helping someone to wonderful is that!
