I recently completed two large memory blankets for a customer. She requested a traditional quilt, so I made it with cotton batting, flannel backing, and binding (which I have now mastered application by machine and no pins!) I quilted in the ditch. Handling the weight of these quilts is a challenge. The clothes can be quite thick with pieces of denim, sweaters, and other items that are stitched onto the blocks. It takes quite a bit of pressure to move these through the machine and, consequently, some strain on my shoulder. The end result is lovely, however!
Large Baby Clothes Memory Quilt

Absolutely stunning! Lucky kids to get such a beautiful quilt.
Thank you Teres!
Got my two quilts today and I absolutely LOVE them. I’m saving them until my children are older, and without a doubt, I will cry at the love stitched into them and the memories of the snuggles in each bit of clothing when I give them. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the beautiful job.
This is so cute!
