Each Memory Quilt is carefully designed here in our studio. Stretchy fabrics are stabilised to prevent your keepsake from losing shape over time. Keepsake Quilts are made up with 3 layers, the top being made from a patchwork arrangement of the clothing you have sent us, and the backing in a co-ordinating cotton, with a layer of batting sandwich between them.
The table below gives a guide on how many items of clothing it will take to create each size blanket. The guide for children's clothing is based on 0-6 month baby-gros, you may need fewer items for older children's clothing. Any items not used will be returned to you with the finished quilt. However please do not send an excessive amount of clothing as this may incur an additional postage charge when returning them.
