A Memory Quilt makes a wonderful and unique keepsake and family heirloom. My quilts are quite unique and designed individually in collaboration with my customers.

My personal website, has a section all about these quilts and many photo examples. For detailed information, please visit and see the pages about memory quilts, the price and process.

Memory Quilts make the perfect gift for all ages, from children to the elderly. They can be made as lap quilts, bed quilts, or wall hangings.

Memory Quilts can be made from sports or travel Tshirts, sweatshirts, baby or children's clothing, shirts, ties, suits, even wedding dresses.

The process is simple for you! When you contact me, tell me approximately what size quilt you'd like (lap size, crib, twin, etc.) and what type of clothing you are wanting to incorporate, and about how much of it you have. I will respond with an email about how many items to send (freshly laundered) and options for design ideas and any further questions I may have.

Styles of quilts are varied....some clients want traditional square pieces (these are what you mostly see on the internet) but I can do lots more than that! Crazy piecing is fun (especially for children's quilts) and then there are whole-garment quilts, where an entire set of jammies or a beautiful dress are applied to the quilt top.

Photos can be transferred to fabric and incorporated into the quilt, too! Other types of personalization are available, as well.

My process is to work closely with you, via emails, photos of the work in process, and phone calls if you like.

If you have an idea or question about something different, please ask me! I just love new creative challenges! :-)

A lap-sized quilt that measures 36" X 48" is based at $345. I charge 20 cents per square inch, no matter the size of the quilt.

After we establish a size and approx. price, I will need 50% down. Then I will ask for the balance only after were sure you are happy with the results. After I receive the balance I will ship the piece to you.

Your satisfaction is my primary objective!

I have a reputation for attention to detail and excellent quality and craftsmanship, (see my feedback in the Kudos section) so you can be assured that your custom made quilt will be a beautiful, cherished heirloom

From a recent customer: " I absolutely love represents every aspect of who my sister was and encompasses many memories of her for me. I will forever treasure this and always hold it near my heart, along with the memories I have of my dear sister. I can't thank you enough for taking the time to create this quilt for certainly have a gift, and created something more beautiful than I ever imagined. THANK YOU!!"

This is what makes it really worthwhile!

Inspiration/Story Behind This Product

The first quilt pictured is 1 of 5 that I made for a widow from her husband's plaid shirts. He LOVED plaid shirts and the daughter caught her mother about to throw out all of Dad's shirts. She knew there was something that could be done with them.

They came to me with 2 big garbage bags of shirts and an order for 5 lap-size quilts, 1 for the widow and 1 for each of 4 daughters.

1 daughter had given her dad a sweatshirt from her college, and I incorporated that shirt into her quilt for her.

They loved how I creatively incorporated different parts of the shirts, like cuffs and button tabs, into the quilts as well.
