Milestone & Collection Quilts
Celebrating Life’s Events

Celebrate a graduation, birthday or wedding with a quilt commemorating an entire lifetime. 
Have a quilt made from your son’s sport tee shirt’s, a patchwork throw from your daughter’s childhood outfit’s, or a stunning quilt from your husband’s ties.  It’s a great way to live with your memories in a functional way (and clear out the clutter!) 

I am open to many different patterns as well depending on the collection of clothing and color palate available.  Creating your quilts is a very unique process and the following will give you some ideas, however, I welcome the opportunity to speak with you to customize the quilts to your memories.

This is a quilt of all past childhood clothing for a graduation.

More than one item can be in each block as well.  These little kids’ socks are strung along to make one big block.



This adorable quilt is a “collection” of first grade girls shirts donated to make a “recycled” quilt as a fund raiser.


This layout works best with similar pieces of clothing of various colors.

This quilt features a collection of Wool Pendleton Skirts.



This quilt, in a fan pattern, features a collection of silk ties.


Trip around the world featuring flannels, denim and khakis.

This is a collection of Harley Davidson Tee Shirts

These are the crew shirts from a college graduation.

I also make pillows

 to go along with quilts and throws.

Pricing for quilts from clothes are determined by the size of the quilt,
the pattern/design of the quilt, and the amount of preparation of the fabric
(i.e. fusing of silks, blends, knits etc.) to stabilize. 
The Fan and Sample Designs are approximately 1/3 higher due to hand appliqué.
