Pictured immediately below is a keepsake quilt designed for a beloved daughter. She received this unique, custom quilt as a birthday gift from her family. We designed this quilt out of the daughter’s old t-shirts. We bordered the quilt with one of her favorite dresses which she wore to her prom (and had outgrown).

Pictured directly below is a keepsake quilt made from a beloved husband’s old clothing — sent to us by his wife. He was a hunter. Therefore, much of the quilt is made from denim fabric and khaki shirts.

We recycled a customer’s old neckties into a treasured keepsake quilt, an heirloom with wonderful memories.

Not everyone has the time or space to start keepsake quilting. This is why we create custom keepsake quilts for you. Whether you want a keepsake quilt to commemorate a person, family, group, or event, we have the experience and expertise to create a keepsake to last a lifetime. Our high quality keepsake quilts feature cut velvet as backing. Chief designer, Rita Glosser, has been creating keepsakes for over 20 years. Just like our memory bears, our quilts are 100% made in the USA. Quilt sizes include throw/lap quilts, twin quilts, full/double quilts, queen quilts, king quilts, California king, but sizing may also depend on the amount of material you send to us.

Keepsake Quilting for Memorials

Keepsake quilting is a beautiful way to preserve memories of those who have passed away. We create keepsake quilts out of a wide variety of materials that customers send to us. Keepsake quilting can include college tees, sports emblems, shirts, pants, coats, furs, wedding dresses, neckties, scarves, uniforms, badges — any belonging or reminder of your loved one that can be sewn into a quilt. The greatest value in keepsake quilting is the sentimental value. Read about the importance of a keepsake for you and your family.

Keepsake Quilting with Baby Clothes

Keepsake quilting with baby clothes definitely has a high cuteness factor. Using baby clothes for keepsake quilting is a perfect way to preserve baby memories as well as extend the life of baby clothes that children outgrow so quickly. Sort through all the adorable baby clothes your child has collected and received as gifts. Once you select the ones that mean the most to you, send them to us… and we’ll design a keepsake quilt for you. We can incorporate monograms and special items into your keepsake quilt.
