There are lots of reasons why you might have adult clothing that you’re holding on to but is no longer in every day use. Maybe you’ve lost someone close to you, and sorting through their clothes is difficult. Maybe you have uniforms or t-shirts that hold lots of memories but are stored away as you no longer wear them.
A great option is to use the clothing to create a cosy Memory Quilt that you can use in your home, and keep those special memories close to hand every day.
Your Adult Clothes Memory Quilt
Your Memory Quilt will be made in a fresh modern style, using traditional quilting methods combined with a few special tricks for working with clothing.
Your first step is to choose a design from our Adult Clothing Keepsakes Brochure (you can request one using the form at the bottom of this page). There are 7 different designs available.
Your Memory Quilt will then be individually designed by one of our small and very talented team, using artfully arranged patchwork pieces hand-cut from your clothing. Motifs, button runs, pockets and other details selected from your clothes can be included in most designs. Any preferences or requests you might have about how different items of clothing are used are welcomed. Most types of clothing and other keepsake fabrics can be used in your Memory Quilt.
Your patchwork is layered with soft, snuggly premium cotton wadding (filling) and a quality 100% patchwork cotton backing, and machine quilted through all the layers for stability and durability. The edges of your quilt are finished with a secure machine stitched binding.
Quilts are backed using a solid or textured colour of your choice. You can also select or provide an alternative backing fabric if you wish, please check with us for further advice. Depending on the design and size your quilt may include a border made from the backing fabric or another coordinating plain colour.
Truly gorgeous, unique and beautiful. A very special keepsake preserving all the memories held in your or your love one’s clothes.
