Unique Memory & T-Shirt Quilts

Custom made and designed for you. No two are alike. No “patterns” are followed. Using a loved one’s clothing and meaningful items, the warmth of the memory quilt is like a special hug. Made with top-quality materials and supplies, it can be passed down for generations.

A custom made quilt from your T-shirts carries on the fun of the concerts, events, clubs, or special places they are from. Why stash them in a closet? Make a quilt with your favorites. They are snuggly and help you share your story.

Quilt Repairs

With years of experience in repairing and finishing old quilted textiles, your worn, torn or tattered quilt can have a second chance at life. Needy quilts can be repaired and strengthened so they can continue to be used or displayed with pride. It is a joy to help these treasures.

A Quick Look At Three Quilts

Here are some recent custom quilts. Each is unique, made completely by me, one at a time, right here in northern New Jersey.

1. This large quilt was made for the organizer of an annual fund-raising walk. It has a hanging sleeve on the back and was quilted with feet that walk across the quilt.

The colorful backing is fun and keeps the African theme going on both sides.

A very fun backing fabric that keeps the African theme going.

This quilt block features a t-shirt image that was satin-stitched onto a polka dot fabric for more added texture and detail.

2. The wool quilt below is one of many family heirlooms attentively cared for by the owner. The original backing and batting were removed and replaced. It was newly quilted in a design suitable to the time the quilt top was made.

The embroidered label will tell its story for the generations that follow. Like all of my labels, it was machine embroidered, then hand sewn onto the back of the finished quilt.

3. A quilt for a new generation. The new baby who gets to play on and snuggle with this is pretty lucky. Her name was machine embroidered on the purple border before it was quilted. This keeps the back looking neat and protects the embroidery. I selected a funky Art-Deco style lettering for some extra pizzazz. The lime-green thread highlights the cupcake fabric.
