I am a mother of three children and a Stay at Home Mom. I have been creating Memory Quilts since 2009.
Many t-shirt quilts are made with t-shirts, sweatshirts, and athletic uniforms. But, Memory Quilts can also be made
from baby items, ties, and various other fabric that has special meaning to you.
I grew up with a mom who loved to quilt too. Her quilting was beautiful. She sewed everything by hand-from the piecing to the actual quilting to the binding. It was all done by hand. I remember she used to count the number of stitches she made per inch! Today, sewing machines and long arm quilting machines are used to piece and quilt. The machines do a fabulous job, but, my mother would never consider them authentic since they weren't stitched by hand! Every now and then, I have to hand stitch a few things in a quilt so that my mom would approve!

My mother died in 2010. I kept all of her quilting supplies and fabric. I still use some of her tools today.
Sadly, my mother never saw this website. I am sure she would have loved it.
