At Quilt Keepsake we specialize is three types of memory quilts: memorial quilts, baby clothes quilts, and t-shirt quilts. We take your clothing and carefully preserve the most memorable and cherished areas of each item, creating a quilt that you and your whole family will cherish.
Memory quilts are a collection of special clothing items pieced together to celebrate important milestones, special events, or the life of a loved one.
Most memory quilts are usually made from clothing collected over a span of many years. Each quilt takes on the personality of the personal items, showcasing achievements, styles, events, and causes that celebrate each individual’s unique journey.
At QuiltKeepsake we've done thousands of memory quilts and each has its own different design and twist. Every quilt is unique but one of our specialties is incorporating fabric items that make each quilt a truly unique keepsake. For example, we've made quilts from military uniforms, flags, dress ties, wedding dresses, ball caps, suits, and mumus just to name a few of the non-standard clothing items people have requested sewn into their memory quilt.
There are lots of reasons individuals make memory quilts but for most people memory quilts solve one of three issues:
By using small, decorative pieces of each item throughout the quilt, each special item will be preserved and remembered in one beautiful custom keepsake.
Most memory quilts can be divided into 3 main categories.
T-Shirt quilts are a great way to preserve and utilize a collection of t-shirts, sweatshirts, or long sleeve shirts. These quilts are very popular for student graduations, birthday and anniversary gifts.
Memorial quilts are remembrance gifts given to spouses, siblings, and children after a family member or friend has passed away. Memorial quilts can contain many types of clothing including dresses, suits, hats, ties, and other unique items.
Baby clothes quilts made up of clothing from children’s early years make terrific Mother’s Day gifts. Special outfits, onesies, socks, and even bibs can be incorporated into a special keepsake blanket.
At Quilt Keepsake we understand that these clothing items are special and often irreplaceable. We work hard to incorporate all the visual elements of the items into the quilt. We spend time designing the best possible layout rather than just forcing the design into a grid.
We strive to create your quilt as quickly as possible without cutting any corners. While some of our competitors take 6 months or longer to complete a quilt our average turnaround time is right around 6-8 weeks from start to finish.
We are always open to hearing your ideas and thoughts on your quilt. We try and communicate throughout the ordering and sewing process to answer any questions or concerns you may have. When working with Quilt Keepsake you are communicating directly with the quilt creators so they can answer quickly and knowledgeably about the project.
At Quilt Keepsake we love quilting and sewing. We are a family company where every one of our quilters has a minimum of 20 years of experience doing quilting and sewing projects. With your special clothing items, you can feel assured that your items will be taken care of and the project will be done correctly and look fantastic.
