Custom Memory Quilts and Blankets
We have been making memory quilts and blankets for over 20 years. We can work with just about any fabric from t-shirts and hoodies to wedding dresses or basic clothing including military garments. To me, a memory quilt is like being able to wrap up in a hug of memories.
There are some differences in the amount of time and materials it takes to make a quilt or blanket depending on the type of garment you want us to work with. Our basic prices are for shirts and basic clothing (t-shirts, button down shirts) There is a higher price charged for wedding dresses, military uniforms and thicker garments like hoodies and sweatshirts.
Wedding dress materials are not made for quilting and often not only need to be treated differently, but they are often used in several layers to account for lace, mesh, translucent fabrics, slippery fabrics etc. We can make beautiful wedding dress quilts but it takes a little longer so the price is a little higher.
Military uniforms are extremely time consuming to deconstruct. They have lots of pockets and seams than need to be removed and opened in order to get the fabric flat enough to work with. Military clothing does make nice quilts though and they are durable so worth the extra time and expense.
Thick clothing and Hoodies
Hoodies and sweat shirts and jackets can actually be turned into blankets, but they are thick and the blankets can be a bit more like a heavy throw. Because of the thickness, they are much harder to work with than other types of clothing. I like to back them sometimes with fleece rather than using batting because fleece provides some of the same advantages but reduces the overall thickness of the final blanket.
Quilts take a considerable amount of time so I have to be able to adjust my schedule to make one. To order a custom memory quilt, Click Here for a PDF Order Form

Baby & Crib Size
Our smallest memory blanket is a Baby Blanket. We can make them from all those saved baby clothes as a way to preserve some of those memories, or we can make them from a loved one’s clothing, wedding dress or military uniform. Most of them can be used as a blanket or can be a decorative element in a room. Wedding dress materials are not fire-safety tested so wedding dress blankets are more decorative and shouldn’t be used for baby to sleep with unsupervised.
For a baby blanket, I need a minimum of 12 articles of clothing, more is better. For a Crib blanket, I need about 18 articles of clothing.
