CUSTOM QUILTS

 

I HAVE BEEN CREATING CUSTOM QUILTS FOR QUITE SOME TIME.    THEY CAN BE EITHER MEMORY QUILTS FROM CLOTHING OF FAMILY MEMBERS OR FROM THOSE WHO HAVE DEPARTED.    I RECENTLY FINISHED A FEW THAT WERE A COMBINATION OF T-SHIRTS, CHILDREN'S CLOTHING AND ALSO PARENT'S CLOTHING SO EACH QUILT HAD SELECTED ARTICLES OF CLOTHING FROM MOM, DAD AND OTHER LOVED ONES, QUITE THE MEMORY!    

CUSTOM T-SHIRT QUILTS ALSO FALL INTO THIS CATEGORY.    THEY CAN BE SEWN WITHOUT ANY FABRIC BETWEEN THE SHIRTS OR CAN BE A TRADITIONAL SET WITH SASH STRIPS SEPARATING THE SHIRTS.  IN SOME INSTANCES THE BACKS OF THE SHIRTS CAN BECOME THE BACKING OF THE QUILT.  IF YOU ARE STORING T-SHIRTS, RESURRECT THEM INTO A QUILT.  YOUNG ADULTS LOVETHEM; COLLEGE BOUND STUDENTS LOVE THEM; RETIRED FOLKS LOVE THEM; THEY PROVIDE A COMFORT THAT A BLANKET CAN'T AND RECEIVERS CAN WRAP THEMSELVES IN MEMORIES.
