Memory Quilts for Young Children

The request I receive most often from clients is to create a memory quilt using baby clothes. 

Mother’s have a hard time parting with those special baby clothes that are full of memories. These are photos of photos, and eventually I will take clearer pictures with our new digital camera, (still waiting for it to come). 

Lately, I’ve had requests from potential clients to post some photos. So for now, I hope these will provide a sense of just one pattern that I’ve used to make memory quilts out of baby clothes. 

I made hearts for the girl’s quilt using baby clothes, and made stars for the boy’s quilt.

These are close-ups using pockets and labels from the baby clothes, which I hand appliqued into the hearts or the stars.
