Time To Share January 2015

Blockbuster Gifts

It is hard to believe that 2014 has come and gone! Now that January is here, I can share the many beautiful holiday quilts and pillows that were made!  In this newsletter, I will be highlighting two very special military quilts that honor two very special servicemen. All Memory Quilts tell unique stories.  That is what makes them so special. Military quilts are so very special because they illustrate the dedication of our servicemen and women.  Adding uniforms from men and women who have served our country is an honor and one that I don't take lightly.   Also highlighted are the 28 holiday quilts that were made! Over 45 years worth of memories are included in these quilts and that is simply amazing and beautiful!

I hope you enjoy the photos and the important stories that are illustrated through fabric.  As always, if you are interested in a Memory Quilt please contact me ASAP so that I can add you to the list! NOW is the time to order graduation quilts. Currently, I have 17 quilts in the queue, eight are for graduation.

Warm wishes for a wonderful 2015.

Goose Bumps

I get goose bumps when I receive pictures of happy customers enjoying their Memory Quilts! Meet Denny, the lucky man who received a full size, Modern style Memory Quilt made with shirts that span over 30 years. The shirts are from his entire family including his son Denny, daughter Rochelle, and granddaughter Rayna! As you can see from the picture, Denny likes his quilt! Here is what he had to say:

"Words cannot explain how much I appreciate Rochelle doing this for me and for the love and effort you put in to such a beautiful work of art...not just a quilt. I was Mr. Mom for several years and my kids (Denny and Rochelle) were my life. While Denny is no longer here you have helped keep his spirit alive and added such a special blessing. God Bless." 

 

 


 

 

 

 

This United States Marine Quilt was made in honor of Corporal Dane Freedman. 

 

Peace of Mind

 The queen size Modern style Memory Quilt shown above is made up of over 60 garments. Dane's uniforms, his fatigues, his special t-shirts, and even his bathing suit all are included in this Memorial Quilt.
Corporal Dane Freedman served in the United States Marine Corp. from  2007-2011. He was proud to be a Marine, and served a tour in Iraq and a tour in Afghanistan as an adept machine gunner.  Sadly, Dane is no longer with us. It is my sincere hope that this quilt brings honor to his memory and comfort and peace of mind to his family.
A very special nonprofit has been established in Dane's memory. Click below to learn more.

 

 


 

 

 

Stars and Stripes

 This very special traditional style lap quilt was made in honor or a wonderful father and husband who served in the US Navy during the Vietnam War.   Included in this quilt are special t-shirts that Tom Rapp wore but also included are two of his enlisted full dress white uniforms from the Navy. These uniforms are over 45 years old! Appliqued onto these blocks are his Navy stripes and the ship patches from the sleeves of these uniforms. The ships he sailed on were the USS America and the USS Saratoga.
This quilt tells a wonderful story of a man who served his country well and of a loving father and husband who liked the Red Sox and his Harley Davidson motorcycles!

His daughter received this quilt on Christmas morning. This is what she had to say about her Memory Quilt:
"Such a special Christmas gift to receive. My mom had a bunch of my dads old t-shirts made into a quilt for me! This is not only the most beautiful quilt I've ever received, but the most special quilt ever! Not a day goes by that I don't think of him or miss him. I'm just so glad that now I have something that will be a piece of him I'll have forever. Thanks mom! "

 

 


 

 


 

 

 

Family Matters

On Christmas morning, Nick and his father, Brad, were the lucky recipients of two twin size quilts made with the many t-shirts and baseball shirts that Nick's mom so thoughtfully collected over the years. These shirts represent over twenty years of memories! Nick's childhood is illustrated by his adorable I love daddy hand printed shirt. The two quilts capture Nick's baseball career, beginning with little league and culminating with his baseball career at Emory University.

Nick's Modern style quilt is shown above on the fence. His father's Modern style quilt is shown below. Now that's a lot of memories!

 

 


 

 


 

 

Gone Running

This gorgeous lap quilt made in the traditional style with premium sashing is one of my favorites.  The marathon shirts are from all over the world-including Hawaii and Paris! The bold backing shown to the right above works beautifully!

 

 


 

 


 




Lacrosse jerseys are beautiful! Notice the argyle pattern on the jersey to the left.

 


The Black Bear is the logo for this Lacrosse team. The graphic, including the colorful camouflage design that trimmed the jersey was added to this block.
 

 

LAX!

Shown below is my very first lacrosse Quilt! This large lap quilt made in the traditional style with block sashing includes 16 Lacrosse jerseys and t-shirts from a local Souderton athlete. These jerseys are some of the nicest I have seen. What a sweet Christmas gift for a very talented young man!

Fresh Trends

Memory Pillows were hot, hot, hot this holiday season. Shown below are some new styles that were made. I love the varsity letter pillow for that special graduate in your life. It is perfect for a dorm room bed!

The Memorial pillow on the right is made with a loved ones cotton shirt and a sweet sentiment was embroidered to make it extra special.  These pillows bring comfort to those who have lost loved ones.
