Legacy Of Love

Legacy of Love

©2009 Karen de la Durantaye

In Loving Memory of
Robert J. de la Durantaye Sr.
September 28, 1923 - January 27, 2009

Life was lived to the fullest in these many pieces of fabric--at work, at play, at rest--woven together with honor & integrity.  Yet most importantly, in these threads life was lived out with great love.  His love for his family was like no other & knew no limits.  One of the greatest blessings I have received from God is the privilege of being his daughter-in-law. May we find comfort & healing as we reflect on his Legacy of Love.

This is only one of nine 36" x 36" blocks I created from my father-in-law's clothing that make up a 9' x 9' quilt.  My hope is that some day in the distant future these blocks will find their way back to each other & the 9' x 9' quilt will be put back together.  Seven of the blocks are in Michigan, one is in New Mexico & one is in Kansas.  This was the most emotionally draining project I have had the honor to work on, yet in many ways I found comfort & healing reflecting on the life of a man who was dearly loved.
