A Bangladesh Beauty!

Posted on

As a “maker”, I always appreciate gifts that are handmade! My son and his wife gave me this beautiful quilt for Christmas! The quilt was slowly and carefully created by a woman in a  village in Bangladesh – every bit of this quilt is done by hand. For you sewing types, it is a teal whole cloth with geometric designs cross-stitched all over the fabric. I know it wasn’t easy to get this beauty all the way back to Alaska and then to Atlanta – it is priceless to me!!! I love this couple and this quilt!!

When my dear friend’s father passed, she immediately knew one way she wanted to remember his life. Because her father had a “Life Well Lived” – she decided to have 5 quilts created with her father’s treasured shirts, ties, sweaters, hats, fabric from his favorite chairs, pants, handkerchiefs and jeans. I love my friend’s generosity that allowed her to surprise her mother, sister, nephew and aunt with a unique and treasured Christmas present!  “….love leaves a memory no one can steal.”
