Passage Quilts

Sherri Lynn Wood made this quilt from her grandmother's clothes as part of the bereavement process. She also helps others make memorial quilts and quilts to mark life transitions as a therapeutic activity that you can read about on her website Passage Quilts. What a wonderful idea! See some amazing quilts here.

Thanks for your post, Karen-- you just gave me the great idea of what to do with a couple of my grandmother's blouses and a robe of hers that we have been saving. She passed in 1981, but she is still very dear to me. We also have some of our baby clothes from the 1970s that are too small now for our kids-- so perhaps I can put together a memory quilt using those as well. Thanks again for the idea/ "aha!" moment. Love the variety of all your posts!!

Wonderful quilt and wonderful idea. One of the first quilts I made was from scraps of our clothing, so a few of the kids clothes are in there. I did heart appliques with them.

That is a wonderful idea. So much betther than just giving all the clothes away.
