  4. What a great idea stitching an event quilt.
    My Mum has been collecting fabric relating to my Dad's life to make a life story quilt. She is planning to do a row for every 10 years of his life, stitching places he has live, jobs, hobbies and family events. Its not quite the same but made me think of her quilt she is planning.
