The baby quilt was pieced and quilted and sent on his way. Made entirely of a friend's son's shirts who was a volunteer fireman. He was to be Uncle Billy to a new generation of Pestor babies. Taken suddenly with congestive heart failure at 30 years old. My friend brought me shirts and said, " just make something-- you choose." The fire trucks seemed appropriate, they were a $2.50 download from Etsy. The other blocks were just pictures found on Pinterest.
I started the quilt on Mother's day, kind of 'teary' while cutting out each block. I can't imagine what my friend must be going through losing a son. I finished it on Father's Day. They back was made from Navy and white gingham.
A good memory --- and I can definitely say a quilt brightened a very sad story.
