Eleanore's Soul Journey Wall Quilt
When Eleanore was diagnosed with end-stage renal disease and received a kidney transplant, we went through her photo albums and chose a series of pictures that portrayed important events during her lifetime including her wedding invitation. We printed them on special computer material paper and along with some of her favorite things we designed a series of collages that I quilted. We called the wall hanging Eleanore's Soul Journey which made up the center collage. During our sessions together, Eleanore reminisced about the highlights of her life such as her wedding, her retirement party, many family events and friends that the photographs evoked memories of. When she passed over, her husband Terry draped the quilt over her casket and now he enjoys the quilt hanging in the livingroom as a memorial to his lovely wife. We miss you Eleanore--- God Bless!
