Here he is with his Harley-D (as he would call it). Shortly after this he had to quit riding, he couldn't keep it upright anymore. He got himself a little scooter and would ride that up and down the road in front of their house. Didn't take long before that had to stop as well....
I had grandma save me out some of his clothes so I could make a quilt. Here's what I came up with:
His clothing was sparse and pretty stained up. I purchase some white and black fabric and used his shirts as the larger blocks. I also bought a striped sheet to use for the back fabric (it reminded me of men's shirt fabric).
He was in love with Harley's so I used a T-shirt of his as an emblem on the back of the quilt.
A simple design but very striking and it's like getting a nice, warm hug from grampy!
Have you made a memory quilt or something in memory of a lost loved one? I'd love to see some of what you've created!
