Bereavement quilts provide great comfort to the grieving by honoring the memory of the loved one and as a work of art that you can wrap around you, sleep under, display or give as a healing gift to help another in their grief.
T-Shirt quilts make great memory quilts, a way to display a collection or remember an event, or as bereavement quilts using the clothes of a loved one. They can provide comfort for the body and for the soul.
Ties quilts come in many varieties such as bed quilts and throws, large and small wall hangings. They can be used in landscape quilts and can bring back poignant memories or honor a loved one along with being a beautiful piece of art.
I love to make quilts and can make any type of quilt you like, such as one made of chosen fabrics or a particular design, of baby clothes, of earned badges. of photos, etc. Or the quilt for a special occasion such as a wedding or a graduation.
What to do with their clothes?
Having just lost a loved one, figuring out what to do with their clothes is often a confusing problem at a time when you are already overwhelmed with grief. If you aren’t ready to give the clothes away but don’t want to pack them away in boxes, then having a quilt made from these clothes may be your answer. Their clothes are transformed into a tangible memorial to your loved one in the form of a quilt.
Custom Designed Quilts
I often collaborate with my clients for a customized design for their quilt but some prefer to leave it up to me entirely. While it is especially comforting to use the clothes or ties of your loved one, I can make a memory quilt without them. Memory quilts can also be made for special occasions or to use a collection of clothes, ties or other saved items in a unique manner.
