What advice would you give someone starting this project? Have fun piecing your quilt and maybe use some fabrics like a memory quilt.

That's going to be a really special quilt for your daughter (and for you, too!) Quilting is such a wonderful way to link the past to the present, and to keep the two of you together, even though she is far away.

Thank you so much Peggy. I think it's going to be some kind of bag for her but I'm not sure yet. It does help keep her close to me in my mind.

Great idea using fabrics from things you made for your daughter long ago. I've got a few of those remnants stashed away, too...and will ponder what I can do for my daughters. Thanks!!!
