It's Easy Being Green!
Many of us have lots of piles of t-shirts and other garments in our closets and storage bins. For whatever reason, these shirts will no longer be worn. Adult kids going off to college typically don't wear their high school shirts anymore. What better way to tell the story of their youth by cleaning out the closets and bins and making a Memory Quilt that can be cherished for years!
Recycling and reusing are what "being green" is all about. Your Memory quilt, pillow, or bear will accomplish three things:

  • make a one-of-a-kind gift for the lucky recipient
  • clean out your closets and dresser drawers
  • help the environment since you are re-purposing the many garments

If interested in a Memory Quilt, Pillow, or Memory Bear please contact me ASAP. Currently I have 24 quilts on my schedule. My shop is busy every day preserving your most cherished memories.

 

 


 

 

Graduation quilts are in high demand right now.  If interested please do not delay in sending me the order. Every year I wind up turning people away, and I dislike doing this so please plan accordingly.

 

 

Lots of people have ties that are no longer being worn. What better way to re-purpose them than to make them into a stunning Tie Quilt. Tie quilts are very popular right now. A record number have been made since the start of the year.   This tie quilt contains 21 ties. I sincerely hope it brings comfort  to the special mom who received it from her children in honor of their dad. Learn more here.

 


Re-purposing shirts and other garments into beautiful handmade quilts is truly recycling at its best! Below are the six different style quilts MQBM makes.

 

 

The Staggered style quilt is very popular! This style is good for shirts with large graphics. Each block is staggered slightly, hence the name ;)  It is the perfect amount of whimsy!

 

 

The Block style quilt is very popular! This style is good for garments other than t-shirts or t-shirts with small graphics.  If you have flannel shirts, cotton button down shirts, blouses, or even light weight jeans and khakis, this style is perfect. Many squares and rectangle shaped blocks make up this style.

 

 

The Modern style quilt is perfect for garments that have both large and small graphics on them. This quilt has a very modern look to it and is made up of 100% garments. There is no cotton sashing added.

 

 

The Traditional style quilt with block sashing is good for shirts that have large graphics.  This style is less expensive than the traditional style quilt with premium friendship star sashing. It requires less labor. This style is very popular!

 

 

The Traditional style quilt with premium friendship star sashing is also good for shirts that have large graphics.  This style is classic, the friendship star pattern has been around since the late 1700's. This style requires more labor than most other styles.

 

 

The basic style is just that---basic. It comes in one size, has the same size blocks, and has no sashing around each blocks. This style is good for those who are on a strict budget.

 




 

Yes, Please!
As you can see this Staggered style Quilt contains lots of t-shirts with large graphics. The sashing (fabric around each block) was made from the child's denim jeans! Who knew recycling could be so beautiful.

 

 

Cuteness Overload!
Four Staggered style lap quilts and four adorable memory bears for this lucky family.

 

 


 

 

 

Custom Veteran Patchwork Pillows
These three 20" pillows were made from one very special Vietnam Veteran Varsity jacket. May they bring honor to the veteran that is pictured on each pillow. These pillows are truly custom because:

  • a custom design was created for each pillow highlighting several pieces of the jacket. Each pillows contains 9 blocks and 2 photos
  • two photos were included on each
  • cording was added

This is not the first time MQBM has made a pillow from a Veteran's Varsity jacket. Each time is no easier, but we are happy to do it and see the end result. Cutting the jacket is very difficult.
Pictured below is the World War II veteran pillow made for another very special veteran a while back. 

 

 


 

 

On The Greener Side!
Wishing you all a Happy St. Patrick's Day!  May we all share a Guinness at our favorite pub one day soon! In the mean time enjoy one of my all time favorite pub shirt quilts!
