Sporty with a Touch of Sparkle

"I am sure you hear very touching stories about the quilts you make, here  is mine:10 years ago my father passed away very unexpectedly on Dec. 10th, for some reason that year, he went Christmas shopping with my mom in November.  While they were shopping, my father found a little light blue sweatshirt with a rhinestone R on it.  He told my mother to buy it for Rachel because it reminded him so much of her.... sporty with a little bit of princess sparkle,  My mom bought it because my father never made a request like that.  That Christmas (my father had now passed) Rachel opened the present from my dad, she wore that sweatshirt until she out grew it... all these years, I have kept that sweatshirt in her closet, not having the heart to throw it away.  Now that princess sparkle is displayed beautifully on her quilt, for that I can't thank you enough.
"

If you look closely you can see the beautiful powder blue R in the middle of the tie dye swirl!

She is a young child who is literally wrapped in the loving memory of her father who was taken from her way too soon.
 
Emotions ran so high when she did this in my shop. I am so very thankful that these quilts bring comfort to her and her brother Reece.

Special Memorial Quilts

All Memory Quilts are special. Memorial Quilts made in honor of those we have lost are very special.
They not only tell a loved one’s beautiful story, they help the people deal with their grief and their loss.
They bring so much comfort. Currently I am making 5 quilts for a family in honor of their mom who passed away.
 A special design was created for these quilts. Here are 3 of them.

Special thanks to Donna Chaffee’s beautiful landscaping in the background!

Love it when I see customers using and loving their Memory Quilts!  Here is what Sophie's mom had to say:

"It's finally spring and time to take all the extra blankets off the bed... All but one, that is. I think she'll sleep with this one all summer. Thank you Molly Fisher!"

Christopher's Amazing Swim Journey

posted Apr 8, 2014, 4:59 AM by Molly Fisher   [ updated Apr 10, 2014, 4:44 AM ]

 

Christoper swimming!  His quilt captures his 12 year swimming journey beautifully!


Christopher Downing lives in Massachusetts and will graduate from high school in June. He has spent the past 12 years of his life swimming at a very competitive level. He has swum thousands of miles during endless practices and meets spanning 14 states!  






  •  Christopher joined his 1st swim team at age 5 and has been swimming competitively ever since. When he was 5 they would 'write his name in' on the swim meet heat sheets, because you had to be 6 to join a swim team and compete.  Most teams wouldn’t let him join as he was too young. One coach at a local YMCA thought for sure, once Christopher tried out for the team, he would see for himself why he needed to wait until he was a bit older to join a team. 
  • The YMCA coach had Christopher 'try out' on 2 different days for the team and when he was able to do the minimal requirements for joining the team, Coach Bob said: “Christopher, since you want to swim so much, I'll let you join, but we will have to write your name in because the computer system won't pick up your Birth year!” 


 Fast forward to 2012/2013, Christopher swam at the:

  • USA Junior National meets in Indianapolis and at the University of Tennessee and Speedo Grand Prix in Missouri.  
  • In December 2012, he qualified for his team’s first ever National Team cut and was on his way to Junior Nationals in Irving, California in August 2013!
  • He was selected as an Athlete Represented during junior and senior years to serve on the NE Swim board.  The highlight has been: He was one of the 3 athletes representing NE at the USA convention in Sept 2013 in Irving, California.

He not only swims but also keeps up his grades. He takes great pride in his achievements in the pool, but what he is most proud of is:

  • His selection into the USA Swimming Scholastic All American team member for the past 2 years (minimum GPA of 3.5) Christopher hopes  to be an example to the younger team members that they can swim their personal best in the pool and also do their personal best in school.  He has swum thousands of miles at endless practices and meets for twelve years!  
  •  One of his earliest goals was to swim Division 1 in college on scholarship.  He can now check that off his bucket list as he was fortunate to be invited by 5 colleges on recruiting trips and ultimately selected Boston University because it was close to home.  He signed his National Letter of Intent with BU on November 15th and will be part of their 2018 class!



 Christopher’s Memory Quilt, shown above,  with 40 of his swim shirts representing his 12 year competitive swim journey! Look close and you will notice both t-shirts shown above are in the quilt, so is his favorite knit hat!

What a great way to start the week! I just received the May/June, 2014 Quilt-it...today Magazine. The magazine featured two of my custom quilts on page 26 and 27 of the magazine. I am so very thankful that my work was included in the article!  Sadly, there is no online version, but here is the link to the magazine. I guess they want you to go buy yourself a copy ;)
