Sadly, the Magazine isn't online, I guess they want you to go buy a copy ;)
Shown above are the 2 quilts highlighted: a baby Quilt made with baby's first year adorable outfits

A GRANDMOTHERS GIFT ON THE OCCASSION OF HER GRANDDAUGHTER'S BAT MITZVAH
By Deanie Yasner
When the time came
for me to decide what gift I wanted to give my granddaughter, Julie, on
the occasion of her Bat Mitzvah, I knew I wanted to tell the story of
our first 13 years together. I wanted to make certain that our joyous
times together - like baking, reading, Scrabble playing, and
story-telling about an elephant named Ellio Dellio - would not be
forgotten. I knew I wanted these precious memories kept alive in a
quilt so I spent hours selecting just the right fabric and found Molly
Fisher, the owner of Memory Quilts by Molly, who began to weave her
magic! Just as people did in the late 1800s, through fabric, Molly
created a "Keeping Quilt" for Julie to wrap herself in our cherished
Having read Patricia Polacco's book entitled The Keeping Quilt,
I learned about her family's journey and her family's keeping quilt. I
knew I wanted my granddaughter to have a Keeping Quilt of her own as
well, to treasure and travel with her now and in the future for
generations to come - a family heirloom, to be sure!
Editor's note: Molly Fisher also creates Chuppah Quilts like
those that have been around since the early 1700s. She is currently
working on a handkerchief quilt that will be used as a Chuppah Quilt.
The hankies belonged to the bride and groom's great grandparents. Visit her website at MemoryQuiltsbyMolly.com
