Pam’s extra wide Hodge Podge Blanket. The finished size on this was 74″ x 82″. I felt a lot of mom guilt after making this blanket! Pam was so diligent in saving her daughter’s shirts over the years! I don’t think I am as sentimental. I do have a box of items in the attic – mostly clothes that I made for the kids. I also feel guilty for not having my kids participate in so many sports. OK, there, I said it. What is a mom, if not feeling guilty about all the things she did wrong as a parent? 🙂

I found your blog through reading your post on Clover Lane. I love these memory quilts! It’s such inspiration for me. I have five sons. The youngest is nearly two. As he grows out of his clothes (many of which were worn by his four older brothers.) I struggle to get rid of them. Call me overly-sentimental, but they hold so many memories! I have kept my favorites of their baby clothes and receiving blankets with the intent of making five, little memory blankets, maybe baby size, for them to use with their babies someday. They also have so many fun t-shirts. I may need to make some pillows of blankets for them to use now.
