I’m making two memorial quilts for Quinn and Sailor Hill, from their father’s clothing. David Hill was the captain of a ship that sank at sea. He saved the lives of 120 crew members by communicating their location. He went down with the ship.
His wife Amy commissioned the quilts. She was 5 months pregnant with Sailor when David died. Quinn was three. I can’t imagine the depth and pain of her loss, but I can connect with it compassionately. Especially when I’m stitching these quilts together for her children.
