Aloha Friends!

Hawaiian Quilt

This past summer has been spent making many unique and meaningful Memory Quilts! I hope you enjoy the ones highlighted in this newsletter. The Traditional style Full size Quilt shown below was made with nine XXX large Hawaiian shirts! I was able to make the 85" by 95" full size quilt with the shirts provided. The backing selected is a cream colored cotton that reminds most of the beach! Now we just need to go to Hawaii!

 

 

 

Fabric Artist

The customer that ordered this quilt had this to say about it: "Well Molly, you are a fabric artist! I just love it and I know my son will too." I have been called many things, but I kind of like this title;)  Read more testimonials.

 

 

 

Hawaiian shirts are gorgeous and work beautifully in these quilts! The variegated cotton backing was selected specifically for this quilt.

 

 

 


 

 

Custom Design


This beautiful block in this Modern style Lap Quilt was made extra large to accommodate most of the Eiffel Tower. It is the focal point of the quilt.
Another way MQBM customizes each and every quilt that is made.

Holiday Quilts


NOW is the time to order holiday quilts!
I already have 15 on my schedule.

 

 

 

MQBM made this Traditional style Lap Quilt filled with tennis shirts.

  • These shirts were cut by the customer (yikes!) As you can see (photos below on the left) the shirts weren't cut uniformly.  I did my best to cut them properly and create uniform blocks (photo on the right).
  • This quilt was given to a young lady who turns 40 this month. I bet you she was surprised to receive a quilt filled with her high school tennis memories! What a wonderful birthday present, all fixed ;)

Please DO NOT cut the shirts for ANY reason. Let MQBM cut all shirts and other garments.  It took a very long time to fix these shirts.  I usually don't take these type of "Oops Quilts" due to the amount of labor involved. But, summer is a good time to work on quilts like these. Plus, I made the family very happy ;)

 

 

 

 

I was asked to make four Modern style Lap Quilts for a family grieving the loss of their husband and father.  Shown here are the four quilts.

  • one for each of the three children and one for April, the wife and mother.
  • each quilt contains shirts picked out by the children
  • embroidery was added to personalize each quilt, "Daddy" for the children's quilts and the nickname  " Nacho" that April used to refer to her husband
  • each quilt was backed with super soft flannel purchased in Lancaster, PA


I have since heard hat the family is cherishing the quilts and that they are bringing comfort to this family as the grieve.  MQBM is committed to helping people through difficult times. Learn more about Memorial Quilts.
