What are Memorial Quilts?
Memorial Quilts are quilts made in remembrance of a loved one. These quilts often incorporate a wide variety of different types of clothing and fabrics. The quilts not only have shirts but often items from different time periods and events from the person's life such as wedding clothes, hats, shirts, jeans, gowns, lines and ties. Many memorial quilts, also called bereavement quilts, will also include photos, quotes or sayings of the person to make it even more personable. These quilts are a great way to preserve those special times and look back and reflect on those cherished memories.
How many items of clothing does the customer need to provide?
It depends on the size of the quilt you order. Please refer to our pricing page. Generally, you need about 12-15 shirts or pieces of clothing for the smallest size quilt. Of course, if your clothing pieces come up just short we will add solid fabric block, making sure to coordinate the fabric to fill in any empty spaces or gaps.
