All Squared Up Baby Clothes Memory Quilt

£150.00£620.00

Create a hug-able keepsake from those baby clothes that evoke memories of special times.

Our ‘All Squared Up’ is a great choice if your clothes contain lots of items with patterns like florals, stripes, stars etc. This Memory Quilt design is based on a tried and tested patchwork pattern of small squares arranged in a grid. This Memory Quilt also shows off different elements of your clothing, such as motifs, pictures and text. A gorgeous patchwork Memory Quilt with lots of interest and a traditional feel

Patchwork pieces based on a 3 inch finished square are individually hand-cut from your clothing. One of our small team of patchwork artists will use larger square and rectangular blocks to keep the cutest motifs, images and other details whole as suits the clothes, and to give a great look across the quilt top. We’ll carefully select pieces from your clothes incorporating button runs, pockets, motifs, and any other interesting details that will fit within the different blocks. Some cropping of images and motifs may occur but we will try to avoid this as much as possible. The squares are then skilfully stitched together in a grid formation and a border is added to frame the patchwork.

Please see the description tab below for information about sizes and pricing, turnaround times, postage, how to send your clothes and other information.

Backing, Filling and Finishing Your Memory Quilt

Our Baby Clothes Quilts are traditional patchwork quilts. The patchwork is layered with soft, snuggly premium cotton wadding (filling) and backed with a 100% pure cotton backing – please choose from our selection in the images above, specify a solid colour or you can provide your own fabric if you wish. We complete your quilt with expertly applied machine quilting to enhance the patchwork, and hold the layers securely together. The quilt is then finished with a secure machine stitched binding.

Name Applique & Personalisation

All our Memory Quilts include a name applique on the quilt top. These are hand-cut in two layers from your clothing, and stitched beautifully across the finished patchwork.
Additional names are £20 each.

A freehand embroidered message block can be added to the quilt. This can be inserted as a patchwork piece, or as a label. Please add a note to your order and we will get back to you with a quote.
From £5 for one word, from £10 for a message or applique image

Photos can also be added – your quilt will require special care when washing if it includes photographs.
£5 per patch
