Sizzling Summer Style July 2013

Start Collecting Now!

Buy Two Shirts Whenever You Can

If you haven't already, now is the time to begin your t-shirt collection for your next Memory Quilt!  Many of my clients comment about how difficult it is to actually take the shirts from their son or daughter. They simply don't want to part with the shirts! A solution: buy 2 shirts each time you have the opportunity, one for them and one for the quilt!  That way there is no hassle. Remember to store them in a bin where you won't forget them!

If you are interested in a Memory Quilt, please contact me ASAP.  Quilts are taking about 12-14 weeks due to the amount on my schedule.  Enjoy the holiday!

Sincerely,

Another view of this traditional style, large lap quilt.

Block sashing was used in pink and blue to give this quilt a real feminine look.

 

Applique and Embroidery!

Are two techniques that are used to make  Memory Quilts extra special.  Applique is a sewing technique used when sewing additional logos, sports or boys scout patches, or even photos onto the larger blocks that make up a quilt. I have even appliqued Christmas stockings!

Names, dates or best wishes sentiments can be embroidered onto a quilt too. The quilt pictured above has: "Best Wishes,  Kristen June 12 , 2013"  embroidered onto a block.  I placed it on the diagonal to give it extra pop!

 

 

 

A Block Style Quilt

This Memorial Lap Quilt was made using the block style. This style is a mix of the traditional and the modern style.  The yellow sashing is perfect for this quilt. It was backed with super soft olive green flannel.

 

 

Caring For Your Quilt

I always encourage my clients to use their Memory Quilts.  They were handmade for the client or their loved one, so by all means, use these quilts! I want you to wrap yourself in your memories-literally!

A page has been added to my website that explains how to care, clean, and store a quilt. Please check it out

Another Graduation Quilt

Filled with Towamencin Baseball, North Penn, and Penn State shirts! I even appliqued a Pennfield JV soccer letter on! This quilt not only looks at the past but also looks ahead to the bright future that Penn State will offer this special graduate.

 

 

 

 

Christmas in July!

I had the privilege of working on my first Christmas Quilt.  It was a Memorial Quilt made for the Ker family. It was made in honor of their wife and mother, Sheila.  Sheila loved Christmas!  Special green and red plaid Christmas fabric was used for the sashing and bright red fabric was used for the premium friendship star in this full size quilt that measures 85" by 95".

Three special stockings were appliqued onto the quilt making it truly unique! The quilt was backed in a beautiful poinsettia fabric and finished off with a bright green binding.
Believe it or not, I have 6 quilts on my schedule for Christmas delivery.  If you are interested in a quilt for the holidays, please contact me ASAP.  I want to make sure I can fill all of the holiday orders, so planning is essential!

 

 

 

 

The Brighter the Better!

I always recommend that clients try to find and collect the brightest shirts possible. Tie dye shirts work wonderfully in these quilts as do neon colored shirts.  The neon pink in the Pink Floyd shirt and the different tie dye shirts make this full size, modern style quilt really stand out.  It was backed in kelly green cotton fabric- this is one of my favorite graduation quilts this year!

 

 

 

A Traditional Style Quilt

This traditional style lap quilt was made in honor of my client's mother. I even added her favorite sweaters and sweatshirts! I love the paisley blue and yellow premium friendship star sashing. It was backed with a beautiful slate blue cotton fabric.

 

 

Memory Quilts by Molly Turns Two!




I was thrilled to celebrate Memory Quilts by Molly's 2nd birthday on June 11, 2013!   These past 2 years have been very exciting!  I am hopeful that the next two will be just as exciting!

Thank you so much for all the support you have shown me over the past two years.  I hope to share many more quilts with you in the years to come! Stay tuned!


Happy 4th of July!
