I miss you, Dad!

Craig Curtis Williams

(the young, handsome fella is my brother. He's 6'2" - I'm 5'0". How does that happen?)

And since this is a quilting blog, and I haven't done any quilting lately (STILL no machine!), here's the quilt I made with his t-shirts after he died. It has been making the rounds, hanging first on my Mom's wall, then one sister's, then my father's best friend's wall, then the other sister's, and it finally made its way back to me last month so I can enjoy it for a while.


Who are YOU remembering this Memorial Day?

What a great memory quilt! I made one last year for my niece out of my late Mom's t-shirts. It meant a lot to her and I know this one means a lot to your family.

This Memorial Day, I'm remembering my high school friends who died in Viet Nam or afterward lived a life of misery because of serving in Viet Nam. It would be good if all those who enjoyed deferments for one reason or another would say "Thank you" to a Viet Nam vet who served in their place.

Love the T-Shirt Quilt. What a great way to remember your Dad.

My Dad was not much of a t-shirt wearer -- I wish he was so that I could make a quilt like that! Great tribute!

Such an awesome story, the quilt is great. I love the "husband" "friend" "father" words around the border
