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.

Time for a Big Girl Bed

20141009_130946

Emily was about to be a big sister, so it was time for a big girl bed. Yet, what to do with the her beautiful crib set? Her new brother won’t need the soft pinks, warm creams, and greens. The crib blanket and bumper pad were in very good shape and way too emotionally important to part with. Why not make a quilted bed topper for the new bed?

Her mom and I met to review the options. We planned the largest quilt possible using the fabrics available, which were all upholstery weight and very beautiful. I designed it to keep the feel of the original quilt, yet expand it to be suitable for the new full-size bed. I added new fabrics to frame the new quilt and to match the room.

About six months later, we met again. The quilt was completed and they were here to pick it up. Emily’s mom burst into tears the moment she saw it. She said she could not believe how beautiful it was and that it was a perfect match for the sage green rug. I love my job!
