Case in point: Pillows for Christmas gifts!
One of my sisters recently lost one of her 'babies'. Her cat Angus - he was 20+ years old and as you can imagine, very much a part of her world. If you have ever had a pet that has passed you can understand how difficult it is. My son Taylor actually was the one who named this cat for her. I believe it was a name of one of his boy toys - a mutant troll or some such thing! He was 2 years old at the time. (time does fly)
I remembered seeing a cute cat quilt via Flickr and I quickly hunted down the pattern. Six White Horses Blog has an adorable baby quilt and the pattern is a free Craftsy download.

The other pillow I made was for my brother. My daughter started a Churn Dash quilt years ago. She gifted the blocks to me and I ended up making a quilt for my brother. He and I were just talking about this quilt too! He loves it still!
