There appears to be a large demand for memory quilts. I have so many requests to make quilts from t-shirts and clothing but I believe there is a better option. Recently I have been making what I call ‘Tree of Life’ quilts which use just a small disc of fabric as a memory rather than a large patch. Fabrics of completely different material and texture can be used.
Apart from the white background, this whole piece was made from my client’s mother’s clothing. The tree trunk was a t-shirt and the top and bottom beautiful silk jackets.
I have just made a set of three similar but smaller pieces from the baby clothes of each of my client’s three children.
This quilt is 1000mm x 700mm and if you want one similar made, the cost is $300 + P&P.
