Bonjour, mes amis!

Splendid Summer Surprises

I hope your summer has had a few sweet surprises!  I know several recent graduates who have been splendidly surprised with beautiful graduation quilts that illustrate their flair so artfully! I have been told, over and over again, what perfect gifts these quilts make for graduates or for anyone who has a t-shirt collection or any memorable fabric that they want to preserve. Below are pictures of recent quilts that I have made, beginning with the Quilt of the Month! Enjoy my latest newsletter!

My summer is still very busy here at MQBM.  If you are interested in a Memory Quilt, for any occasion, please contact me so that I can add you to the list. Currently, I have 21 quilts on my schedule. Turn around time is about 4-5 months, so please plan accordingly. I hate to even bring this up, but, the holiday season will be here before you know it, so if you are interested in a quilt for December, please get your order in ASAP.  It is a good idea to begin thinking about it now, because I will have to turn people away this year.



Quilt of the Month

I chose this traditional style baby quilt that measures 54" by 54" for QOM because of the many unique items included in it! No baby quilt is complete without a gorgeous infant hat, which has an adorable poof, see up close picture below on the left!  The quilt block shown on the right is part of a precious onsie that was embroidered by the child's grandmother. Four of these onsies were included in this beautiful baby quilt. Click here to learn more about baby quilts.





Crazy About You

The above modern style, lap size quilt was made for a recent graduate.The picture on the right is of the "pillow case block" in the quilt. This pillow case, made from a self portrait that was drawn by this graduate when he was a young child, looks wonderful! I just love that it was included in his quilt!





Sorority Girls Forever!

I made two graduation quilts for two Tri Sigma sisters of mine! I was honored to make them for Roe and Val's daughters who both graduated from high school this past June!


Rachel will take this modern style lap quilt to Millersville University this fall.  These quilts always carry a "bit of home" in them. Roe shared a sweet story about how important some of these garments are: read more.


Here is a picture of Rachel now and then! I think Rachel's quilt will show her flair perfectly in her dorm room and provide fond memories of home!  Perhaps another Sigma? We hope so!

Best wishes Rachel!




This modern style, twin size quilt measures 70" by 95" and  was made for another Sigma! Val's daughter, Caitlyn, will use this twin size quilt for her dorm bed!


We wish her the best as she leaves to attend the University of South Carolina in the Fall. Perhaps another Tri Sigma? We hope so!

Best wishes Caitlyn!






Hand Picked

I am asked frequently what type of  t-shirts are best for Memory Quilts, and I always answer that the t-shirts with the most memories are the best! But, there are a few things to keep in mind as you gather your t-shirts:

  • shirts that have dates are wonderful because they establish a timeline in your quilt
  • include at least one shirt with your last name on it
  • shirts with personal photos on them are great
  • homemade shirts are the BEST!
  • bright colored shirts work really well
  • try to limit the number of white shirts, white shirts get dirty fast!
  • if you have several shirts with same logo, only select one or two colored ones
  • omit torn or ripped shirts unless the rip is on the sleeve or far away from the logo
  • omit stained shirts
  • try to select shirts from the many phases of your life, not just one phase

Remember more than shirts can go into your Memory Quilt! Click below to learn more!

Life Is Good

Recently I made three Memorial Quilts for three sons that lost their father. These quilts were filled with Life is good shirts because their dad wore so many of them! Two of the quilts were made in the Block style to showcase the small logos! All three were backed in super soft flannel!









Classic Style

The traditional style, large lap quilt was made with premium friendship star sashing. There are very few t-shirts in this quilt but several beautiful skirts, sweatshirts and even a pillow top!  I love this classic style quilt! Click here for more photos.
