Memory Quilts are similar to t-shirt quilts but can be made out of any type of clothing from a loved one who has passed away. Many of our customers have taken great comfort in cuddling up with a quilt made out of their loved ones clothing. It is a tangible way to feel close to them. One of our favorite quotes used on memory quilts is: "These are the clothes I used to wear, hold them close and I'll be there." These special quilts become family heirlooms and are always a memorable and treasured gift.
Just bring in the clothing items (uncut) and we will design a custom quilt that will be sure to delight the recipient.
We can create multiple quilts for spouse, children, and grandchildren from dress shirts and pants, jeans, t-shirts, dresses, jackets, and more. Once the quilt top is made, it is assembled with the quilt backing material and batting on our longarm machine and professionally longarmmed with your choice of quilt design. Then the quilt is finished with binding. All materials used are high quality and will stand the test of time. These are true quilts, not blankets.
Caring for your quilt: Quilts can be Machine Washed and Dried. We suggest to wash in cool water and low to medium heat in dryer. If Cuddle is used on the back, do not use fabric softeners in the wash or dryer sheets that contain fabric softeners to maintain original softness.
