Our Hats Are Off...Loving through fabric

A different style of memory quilt.. We're all familiar with Tshirt quilts but how about a 'hat brim' quilt. Barbara made this quilt out of her husband's favorite hats. He recently passed away from a long battle with Alzheimer's. He loved his favorite Tshirts so much she couldn't make a quilt for her son and daughter, as they were literally worn to threads. He loved hats a lot too and had some favorites. Barbara took them apart. She said that was the hardest part...then she machine stitched them to her
husband's jeans that she cut up. Barbara loves black & white fabric and added that to the sashing. What a beautiful tribute!
