UFO IV MemoryQuilt

My Sister in law Aida was killed in a car accident in October 1991. I had never met her in person,we had only spoken on the phone cause we still lived in Germany at this time. Coming to the states for her funeral was not easy. It was also meeting my husbands family for the first time and our 10th wedding Anniversary the same month . I did put all this in a place far away from where I was  until now, when I decided it was time to finish it. I`m happy to have it on my wall and remember Aida every time I look at it.
 I don`t even remember when I had started this quilt,but I know I just could`t work on it without getting very emotional. The green butterfly's are made out of  Aida`s dress that I took with me . I wonder if anyone else in the family remembers her wearing this dress to work ?


  1. What a beautiful tribute to your sister-in-law

  2. What a lovely way to keep your sister-in-laws memory fresh

  3. Auntie Rita, the quilt is very sweet and beautiful. I don't remember the dress Auntie Dada wore, but reading this brings back a flood of memories. Thank you for posting this picture.
