Gifts That Tie Generations Together

Quilts and Blankets

Memory Blankets and Quilts from Clothing

We offer a number of different styles and sizes of blankets/quilts made from clothing and wedding dresses.  From baby and crib blankets to lap quilts, we incorporate your loved one’s clothing into an heirloom “hug”.  Below, find options and pricing and a link to our order form.  Or, you can find our order form by clicking HERE

Baby & Crib Blankets from Clothing

Order formA baby blanket made from a late loved one’s clothing can be a beautiful shower gift and a way to include the memory of that loved one with the coming of a new generation.  We can make a baby blanket or crib blanket from a variety of types of clothing.  However heavier clothes like jeans, sweatshirts and jackets don’t really make good baby blankets because they are so bulky.  Generally, we create the blanket top from the clothing you send and add a solid cotton/poly backing.

Pricing:

for a baby blanket made from clothing (36″ x  48″) I charge $245
for a Crib Quilt made from clothing (42″ x 54″) I charge $285

Shipping is an additional $15-$20

Baby & Crib Blankets from Wedding Dress

Order formA baby blanket made from a wedding dress can be a beautiful shower gift or addition to your christening ensemble as well as a family heirloom to pass on to future generations.  Wedding dress materials are generally not friendly to quilting so there is a lot involved in getting the materials to work together.  The end result can really be special, but the additional time involved means that it is more expensive.  Generally, we create the blanket top from the wedding dress and add a matching satin backing that is soft on baby’s skin.  Normally, we remove bead work when making a baby blanket because beads can scratch.  However, if you want to use the blanket decoratively and want us to keep any bead work, make sure to mention that on the order form or in a note and we will keep the beads on.

Pricing:

for a baby blanket made from wedding dress (36″ x  48″) I charge $285
for a Crib Quilt made from wedding dress (42″ x 54″) I charge $325

Shipping is an additional $15-$20

Lap Quilts & Blankets from Clothing

The largest blanket we offer is a Lap Quilt. It measures about 54″ x 72″.  We offer a couple of different approaches to them:

T-Shirt Lap Quilts $375

Order formOur t-shirt quilt is made of 20 squares.  To get 20 squares means we need at least 10 t-shirts.  It works best if we have at least several shirts with graphics on both the front and back, but we can use blank squares.  Generally, we will use the shirts to make the top of the quilt and use our own soft cotton/poly fabric for the backing.

Larger quilts can take a couple of months to get done.

Price is $375 and shipping is an additional $15-$20

 

Sweat-Shirt Quilts $425

Order formWe can make a quilt from sweat shirts  and other kinds of heavy shirts or heavy clothing or a mix of heavy and light-weight clothing.  However, it take a lot more work because all the different weight and stretches have to be worked together.  It is best to send at least 12 garments.  We will work with those garments in what we think will be the best union of them.  That may mean a more free-form style.  Generally, we will use the shirts to make the top of the quilt and use our own soft cotton/poly fabric for the backing.

Larger quilts can take a couple of months to get done.

Button and Cotton Shirt  Lap Blankets $375

Order formIf you have 10-12 button-down shirts or blouses, we can make a lovely quilted blanket.  We can even incorporate some neck ties.  With these types of garments, I’ll likely create an overall design that allows us to mix up the various garments into star blocks or a grouping of design blocks.  Generally, we will use the shirts to make the top of the quilt and use our own soft cotton/poly fabric for the backing.

Larger quilts can take a couple of months to get done.

Wall Hangings

I have not made a lot of decorative Wall Hangings but it is an interesting way to keep and display the materials from one or several garments. I like them because every one is a challenge.  However, it is also very difficult to price this service up front because I consider each one an individual textile art piece.  My Fabric Wall Hanging pricing is based on either a flat, patchwork and applique or a 3-D sculpture.

for a Flat/Applique design Fabric Wall Hanging I charge

  • $155 for an 18″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $195 for a 36″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $215 for a 36″ square.

For a 3-D Sculptured design I charge

  • $195 for an 18″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $235 for a 36″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $265 for a 36″ square

Fur Wall Hangings $550 and up

For a fur based wall hanging, I would want to discuss the kind of fur (s) and size before giving an estimate.  Feel free to call me at 937-231-5025

Christmas Tree Skirts

Order formWhat better way to share an heirloom wedding dress with multiple adult children than by having it turned into Christmas tree skirts.  Every year, this special heirloom is not only beautiful, but meaningful.

We can use your garments to make unique Christmas tree skirts. Tree skirts come in the following sizes and prices:

24″ across = $120 each
36″ across = $185 each
48″ across = $245 each
52″ across = $285 each
60″ across = $325 each

Shipping is $15 for the first skirt and $3 for each additional. To order,  Click Here for a PDF Order Form

My measurements are based on measuring across the full circle from edge to edge. So, the measurement from the tree trunk to the outer edge of the skirt would be approximately half of the total measurement. This means a 48″ skirt measures 24″ all the way around from the trunk.
