Roy's Memory Quilt
I just finished making this memory quilt for my friend Roy Stout. Roy was a talented architect who designed fabulous buildings that have enhanced the London skyline.
He designed and oversaw the building of my house, so I wanted to put some images on the quilt that would remind him of the job he loved so much. (He especially loved bricks!)
He also enjoyed visiting churches, and the cities London and Paris. I was very glad to find fabrics with those images to include in the quilt.
As I was sewing the last stitches on the binding, I got a call from Roy's son to tell me that he had died a few days ago. I am so sorry that I'll never see him again and that he will never see this quilt. He was well loved.

It’s so sad that Roy didn’t get to see this glorious quilt - but I’m sure his remaining family members will cherish it. What a fabulous tribute to a well-lived life!

I think I will actually re-make it into a fiddle quilt and give it to someone I don't know. That way it will be of help to someone, as I hoped it would help Roy.

Linda, I just saw this post and think it's so touching and so sad. What a wonderful gesture, and I know it will be of help to someone
