37/365 Objects: Brown Quilt

I made it for him, Triple Irish Chain, in plaids and browns from a box of fabric I inherited when my aunt died. In the blank spaces, quilted three-leaf clovers and 42's, his union local.

His girlfriend stabbed it with a knife.

I took it home to repair and never gave it back. He died in June. This is what remains.


  1. His girlfriend was crazy. I know he loved that quilt. And you.

  2. This breaks my heart. And I'm really, really glad you got it back.

  3. I am behind in that story (lost the URL) but I agree with Mali. And IB. And Kim.

  4. All your posts are breath-taking.
