One of my favorite things to make are Memory Quilts.
A Memory Quilt is a quilt made up of clothes but are not just limited to t-shirts. You would be amazed what can be added into a memory quilt. As long as it is made of fabric it can be added, though sometimes you need the aid of some sort of stabilizer or interfacing.
The first memory quilt I made happened almost by accident. A girl I knew in the mom’s group I belong, was talking about wanting to have one done but couldn’t find anyone to do it. So, I volunteered to help her. We made plans to get together and go through what she had for clothes and what she had in mind for the quilt.
I wasn’t quite ready for the two plastic bins of baby clothes she brought over, but luckily she just wanted a basic patchwork pattern. So, over the course the next 6 months I turned all those clothes into this twin size quilt.
Here is a picture of the front and the back.
Yup, it was like two quilts in one. The thing weighed like 20 pounds but she loved it and it included almost all of what she brought over.
