Do you have a loved one who has passed that you would like to remember? Here are ideas on how you can incorporate your loved ones memorabilia into a quilt to wrap yourself and keep yourself warm with memories.
Comfort the Sick, Ease the Loneliness
I made a Remembering Quilt for a friend who was going through chemotherapy, I found she was having short term memory loss during some of her treatments.
She passed away with her granddaughter having the quilt now. I gathered all the pictures from Facebook because she would post pictures of importance to her before she became too ill. I kept in mind that she asked me if the quilt could be given to her grand daughter so she wouldn't be forgotten. I was able to put several pictures of my friend and her grand daughter together.
Use as a Tool When Working With Veterans Suffering from PTSD & TBI
I will continue to help our wounded military who benefit from Remembering Quilts with labeled pictures. Making
Remembering Quilts for wounded military suffering from a TBI allows me to work directly with the families to choose pictures, the layout and names of the people, places and items to help jog their memory.

A RememberingQuilt is a Unique Opportunity to Comfort Someone Special
Each conversation with a family member or care giver, each and every mention of the Remembering Quilt's Content becomes a unique opportunity to stimulate the loved one's memory and the remembering by directing their attention to one of the photos, identifying the picture and asking a question about it.
