THE WORK OF MY HEART QUILTS

HELPING FAMILIES HEAL ONE QUILT AT A TIME

A "Work of My Heart" quilt is a handmade heirloom to be cherished for generations. Using the clothing of your loved one who has passed away, we will create a therapeutic healing quilt. As you share your memories of the special clothing, we will work together using sketches, photos and your ideas to create a very special quilt that will become a wonderful family keepsake. A "Work of My Heart" quilt is a unique way of wrapping up in your memories to begin healing. Please go to my "CONTACT" page for details on pricing and  how to order.

This is the quilt that started it all. In 2001, my friend Leslie Delp who is a grief and loss counselor asked me to make a quilt in memory of her stillborn son Kristopher. We joined forces and worked together to help families heal one quilt at a time. In 2002, Leslie started Olivia's House, a grief and loss center for children. All services are free for the children and the center is funded by the community and grants. I have continued creating memory quilts for families and have begun compiling stories and photos to write a book

Here is the "heart" detail of the quilt with Kristopher Eric Delp embroidered in the yellow strip.
