Memory Quilts

Photobucket Photobucket
Pocket full of Memories.
This quilt is made up of envelopes that are all filled with fabric postcards. Each postcard has either a picture or a memory printed on it. This is a time piece that the young or old will enjoy. It is shown in Blues and Whites but would look great in any color combination.

Photobucket Photobucket These quilts were made for someone whose Father had just passed away. The quilts are made up of his clothing with a photo in the center. We tried to keep the shirts as he would have worn them as well as kept pockets from his pants on so that they may put little notes or trinkets in.

Photobucket Photobucket Here is another sample of a memory quilt. This quilt was made for a woman whose mother had recently passed on. Among her many beautiful outfits we also added in little phrases that she used to say so many times in her life.

I love doing custom orders for memory quilts. Don't think you have enough clothing left?!? I only need as little as a few outfits to make a small lap quilt. One can be made with or without photos, in almost any design that you might like. Contact me for more information.

This is beautiful. What a wonderful idea. I enjoy going to Quilt shows and visiting museums to appreciate the quilting. I have never seen this before.
