Dignity Quilt for Shalom Manor


Last year the nursing home I used to work at asked me if I would make a Dignity Quilt for them.

A dignity quilt is a quilt that is used to cover someone after they pass away and are being taken to the funeral home.
This is part of the Death with Dignity movement among nursing homes and other long term care.
I loved the Mystery Quilt Pattern so I made another one. (here's the blog about the first one)

They wanted this to be about 5 feet by 7 feet. 
This is about that :) I forgot measure it when it was done!

I had my quilter use her flutterby pattern as butterflies are often used in hospice 



I had a friend embroider a label for me so it will last longer through washings

signed

They also wanted a pillow case to store it in

So I used the leftover fabric

and here it is inside
