Alex Anderson's Memorial Quilt StoryShare

The Quilt Show is teaming up with the Quilt Alliance and the International Quilt Museum to collect and share stories about memorial quilts. If you have made a memorial quilt or received one in honor of someone in your life, we would love to hear your story.

 

Have you ever made a quilt to honor the loss of a loved one?

 

Memorial Quilt StoryShare:

 

The Quilt Alliance has a project called Go Tell It! that is all about preserving quilt stories, and anyone can submit their story. Just record a video that is 3 minutes or less in length via a smart phone or tablet about your memorial quilt and upload it to the Quilt Alliance website. Visit this page for step by step guidelines, from recording tips to uploading your video.

 

The Quilt Show will select a number of videos to share via the newsletter in August and September. The Quilt Alliance will also share all videos submitted on the Quilt Alliance’s YouTube channel.

 

Alex has already finished hers, watch it here:

Such a great job of representing your feelings and story into a quilt. Marvelous work.

Thanks for sharing your dad's quilt here. I just submitted my memory quilt for my dad; I'm pretty sure I "smiled like an idiot!" per your recommendation. Lol. I hope my story was what they were looking for.

I did send a video to the Quilt Alliance, are you going to feature the memorial quilts here somewhere? It was nice to get out the quilt that I made several years ago in memory of loosing my Mom.

That quilt is just beautiful. I feel richly blessed that I got to know your dear dad. He was a wonderful man who was very proud of his daughter! What treasures, both Joe and this quilt!
