Memory Quilts

Memory quilts are a very special kind of custom quilt made to honor the most significant moments of our lives....
    a birth, a graduation, a wedding, an anniversary, a lifetime. 
It is truly a privilege to create a memory quilt for a client and a very meaningful labor of love for me.  
Below are examples of some of the memory quilts that I have had the honor of creating.

If you are interested in having a memory quilt made, I hope you will contact me to discuss the possibilities.  Prices are the same as for custom quilts, but the materials used vary by project.  They include clothing, photographs, and other mementos.  Click here to see custom quilt pricing

Please use the word QUILT in the subject to help me recognize real messages from SPAM.  

Or you can reach me by telephone 727-741-4722.
