Patchwork memory quilts are created from your own salvaged pieces... a slogan tee shirt or a dress you couldn't part with from something or someone special... just about anything! Cindy started doing this in an attempt to salvage a very old and tattered patchwork Ron inherited from his Mother. The patches had long since disintegrated so one at a time Cindy replaced the hopeless pieces with memories of her own. Since then she has designed and stitched unique treasured patchwork memory quilts for others.
Each patch is about 5" square and hand stitched onto a plain lightweight sheet. When all the pieces are in place, they are zigzagged with the sewing machine and backed with something puffy and soft! Some of the patches are embellished. The finished quilt is a lap size, approximately 4.5' X 5'.
You send the personalized pieces and Cindy will do the rest. Total cost is $200 plus shipping.
