Keepsake Custom T-Shirt Quilt

About This Project

I made this small heart Keepsake Custom T-Shirt Quilt (“pixelated heart”) for a longtime friend who lost her eight year-old daughter following a four-year struggle with cancer. Because I was lucky enough to have known this little girl nearly all of her life, it was especially important to show how much I loved her with the quilt I made for her family. The last words Ali spoke to me before she became unable to speak were, “I love you, Miss Kathy.” She was a gift to all who knew her, and this bright quilt, made out of four-inch squares from some of her little t-shirts, is a reminder of the love she showed her family and friends.
