Our designs for memory quilts made from assorted clothing and other fabric items are still in the development stage. We expect it to remain this way for quite some time. What we do know is that your items are the single most important variable when we choose a pattern or create a design. In many cases, we will suggest seeing your items before we make any recommendations. We look at types and weights of fabrics, and colour. In the majority of cases, we do not use interfacing to back our fabrics. It is very important to us that your quilt remain soft and the fabrics feel as they did in their original condition.
We also have some customers that know exactly what design they would like to display their fabrics. In this case, we ask that you include a simple sketch with your order form. We believe written communication is essential in our ability to provide the highest level of service.
It is very difficult for us to determine how many items are required for a particular size quilt. We recommend giving us as many items as you wish, and following our guidelines for Preparing Your Items. If you have a limited # of items, but would still like a quilt, we can combine new fabrics with your clothing items.
Quilt sizes on our price list are an approximation—but the list provides a very accurate guideline regarding the cost of a memory quilt. If you want your memory quilt to fit a particular bed, please provide exact measurements on the Order Form under “Comments or Special Instructions”.
Quilt pricing is based on the actual size of the quilt top prior to the quilting process (stitching the three layers together). Your quilt will actually shrink anywhere from ½” – 1 ½” in the finished product. Pricing is calculated per square inch.
