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:
high performance shirts like Under Armour
long sleeve and short sleeve knit shirts,
long sleeve, cotton button down shirts-Hawaiian shirts work well
flannel or fleece pants
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
canvas bags with nice logos on them
any homemade cloth item-even felt
Items that don't work well:
hats of any kind
anything that doesn't lay flat like socks
super thick items
button down baseball jerseys
garments with holes them. Holey garments makes a holey quilt!

This baby quilt took an enormous amount of time to create. It is truly a custom quilt. The end result is a wonderful quilt for Josie's bed!
