Often I add labels to the quilts I make – often I use the tag line ‘handmade with love’ those who know me well know how true this tag line is. But for the Kilt & Coat Quilts – these have a different label.
The family requested these labels for their quilts …
“Beannacht leat go bhfeicfidh mé aris thú” is Irish Gaelic for ‘Until we meet again’ – or a literal translation is ‘Blessings until I see you again’. Which for these quilts with deep Irish roots & laden with Irish kilts – was so perfect.
I simply ADORE these photos that I took of the siblings when they picked up the quilts. The pictures – to me at least – scream what my Quilting A Memory project/charity is all about.
I am working on more Memorial & Memory Quilts and I look forward to sharing the results with you soon.
