Memory Quilts from Baby Clothes

Got baby clothes?

Baby's clothes acquire history so quickly: There is the blanket he or she came home from the hospital in, the overalls he or she wore while learning to crawl, the flannel pajamas she fell asleep in at night. For those items too precious to give away, or too stained to pass along, there is a solution more creative and less cluttering than a box in the attic -- a baby memory quilt that is sure to become an heirloom.

Traditional Style

If the answer is "yes" to the question: "Got baby clothes, blankets, bedding and sleepers?",  then why not make a baby memory quilt and preserve those sweet outfits and wonderful baby memories.

Baby quilts come in 2 lap quilt sizes and styles
  • 46 inch by 46 inch, 36 items needed, cost:  $800.00
  • 54 inch by 54 inch, 40 items needed, cost:  $850.00
  • Traditional style with sashing fabric around each standard 4 or 6 inch square block (picture to the left is a Traditional style)
  • Modern style without sashing fabric and many different shaped blocks (see photo album below)

Baby Quilts take much longer to make because each block is half the size of the standard quilt that I make.

Some items included in the traditional baby quilt shown above:
  •   the kimono that the baby came home from the hospital in
  •  a sweet  "dress up" outfit,
  • a binkie holder with his favorite stuffed bear attached
  • an infant hat
  • daddy's favorite outfit
  • I love mommy shirt

Modern Style

A Miracle

This Modern style, twin size baby quilt was made with over 75 baby items, from precious baby blankets to adorable onsies!

David was born with significant health issues. Shortly after birth, his parents were told that he would most likely die in 24 hours.
David was given to his mother and she held him for 24 hours. In that 24 hours, David started to rebound.

Today, he is a healthy young boy running around the house enjoying his Memory Quilt that contains the many garments he wore during that first miraculous year of his life!

What a story this precious Memory Quilt tells!

Custom Designed

This baby quilt shown below was made out of precious homemade flannel nightgowns and flannel pants, it matches the large queen size quilt that was made in the same diagonal design using the same garments!
