Mary's Cushions

Recently I was commissioned to make 12 memory cushions for a family that lost someone very special.
Her name was Mary and she was a lovely lady. I know this because she was my friend and my neighbour. I knew her for a lot of years so it was an honour for me to make these keepsakes for all the family.  They are made from Mary's clothes and bedding.


 Butterflies and feathers had special meaning in Mary's life so each cushion has an appliqued butterfly and feathers incorporated into the quilting.

















 The 4 large cushions........
and some of the smaller ones.
I thoroughly enjoyed making these and the family were delighted with their keepsakes.

The pillows are gorgeous. I love the idea of making pillows as a tangible memory of the person being thought of. Your design of feathers, hearts, and butterflies is delightful to look upon.

What a sweet remembrance to Mary; I'm sure they will savor your quilted treasures for years to come.
