Items For Quilt

Memory Quilts by Molly contain MORE than just t-shirts! 

Memory Quilts can and should be made up of more than just t-shirts!  So many of my quilts contain precious garments other than t-shirts! Select items that are most memorable for you or your loved one.
Below is a list of items that work really well in these quilts:
  • mesh jerseys
  • high performance shirts like Under Armour
  • long sleeve and short sleeve knit shirts,
  • golf shirts
  • men's and women's bathing suits
  • long sleeve, cotton button down shirts-Hawaiian shirts work well
  • sweat shirts
  • flannel or fleece pants
  • pajamas                                          
  • all baby clothing
  • ties and handkerchiefs
  • cotton bed sheets can also be used
  • high school varsity letters, jacket or sweater
  • suspenders or aprons
  • boy scout badges
  • girl scout badges
  • baseball patches
  • canvas bags with nice logos on them
  • beach towels
  • Baptismal outfits
  • any homemade cloth item-even felt

Items that don't work well:

  • wool blankets
