A couple from Northport, Alabama contacted me about doing a quilt for them back in October. They were going to deliver the shirts to me at the Madison Street Festival but had a family emergency that weekend and was unable to make it. So a few weeks later, they drove to Madison to bring me the shirts. They did not want to put them in the mail. These shirts belonged to their 25 year old son who overdosed and passed away 3 years ago. They told me his story and also showed me photos of him wearing these shirts. These shirts are priceless to them!
I finished this precious quilt in January and they picked it up a couple of weeks ago. Their son, Trey loved hunting, John Deere, and the Alabama Crimson Tide! Each shirt has a story to tell!
On the back of the quilt, I added Deuteronomy 25:19 – The Lord has given thee rest from all thine enemies.
On Tuesday, I got this message from Trey’s mother:
I know how important all of these shirts are! I will take the utmost care of your priceless memories and make them into a meaningful quilt that can be passed on to future generations.
