Memory Quilts
(samples shown below)

Memory photo quilts are an individual and personalized gift. Memory quilts cobble together shared memories, precious moments and treasured times.

Our Process:

  • Each memory quilt begins with a custom design that incorporates photos selected by you
  • The photos are transferred to fabric to create pieces of cotton for the patchwork quilt face
  • Once the quilt face is complete, batting and backing are added
  • The binding technique used is called self-binding - the backing fabric is folded over onto the front to provide the quilt’s binding
  • The quilt layers are then tied together throughout the quilt with coordinating embroidery thread
  • A rod pocket is attached for hanging, if ordered
  • The finished quilt (with or without a rod pocket) is delivered to you via USPS Priority Mail with Insurance and Delivery Confirmation

Each quilt tells a story and has special meaning to the recipient. These quilts make a wonderful gift or special addition to your home. They become treasured keepsakes and can be made from photos, certificates, awards, old letters, recipe cards, children’s artwork and any other items you wish to use. All are returned to you without harm, in the same condition as given for your project. Photos can be of various sizes, which add to the quilt’s design. Memory quilts are best cared for by hand washing and air-drying.

Every quilt is a unique creation – designed with the photos and color scheme of your choice - for birthdays, anniversaries, graduations, weddings, celebrations of accomplishment, a growing family or retirement. A hit with young and old, they are perfect for any occasion, any time of year!
