Quilts are made with your clothing. I've numbered how many squares each quilt holds, but note that on some clothing I may be able to get multiple pieces. Please do not send more clothing than the coordinating squares number for each quilt size. It does not matter how small your clothing is, I will applique smaller pieces. If you do not have enough clothing, that is fine too. I'm happy to add in fabric, it actually helps the quilts look a little more cohesive when I do. Also, thin blankets are a great thing to send along as I can get many squares from them.


***********************************************

INGREDIENTS:

top layer- your clothing. If you do not have enough, I'm happy to supplement with fabric, but let me know that this is okay with a note included with your clothing.

middle layer- all-natural, long staple pure virgin cotton batting

bottom layer- 100% all natural buttery soft cotton the color of oatmeal, but there are options for color backing.


*********************************************

OPTIONS

All rag quilts come standard with ivory cotton muslin (it gets softer and softer with each wash). If you prefer a different color than ivory on the back of your quilt, add the coordinating "solid color backing" for the size quilt you are purchasing.

You can choose the backing color from this page: https://meanderandmake.com/fabric/solids-1/ Let me know the color backing you want in the box on listing page. If you don't see a color you'd like, message me and we can discuss other options.

If you would like a message, name, date, photo or anything special added to your quilt, you can do so by adding this option on the listing page

If you are purchasing more than one quilt, you will automatically be given 10% off your order.

**********************************************

WHAT YOU NEED TO DO:

1. Purchase quilt, you will then receive an email from me telling you where to send your clothing
2. Send enough clothing for the specified amount of squares I need. If you do not have enough clothing, I can add in fabrics, but you need to let me know if this is okay.
3. Include in your box of clothing: the purchasers name on the OUTSIDE, and any special directions on the inside. If you have particular things you want on the quilt from a certain piece of clothing let me know by pinning a note on each piece of clothing.


**********************************************

MATERIAL INFO:

You can send any kind of fabric or item with the exception of:
-Silk
-Swimsuits
-Hats or bonnets or toboggans
-Underwear
-Socks
-Any crochet items


**********************************************

LEFTOVER CLOTHING

My goal is to use everything you send me, but if I have leftovers they will be donated and scraps will be thrown away. If you want some of your things sent back to you there will be an additional postage fee and you must tell me before I send out your quilt. Once your quilt is shipped, your clothing is gone.


**********************************************

NOTES

Clothing is cut up into squares the correct size of my patterns. If graphics on your clothing/tshirts are bigger than block then understand that some of your graphics will be cut off. I always try to get the best part of your clothing such as a name, monogram, etc, but understand that this is not always possible

 

**********************************************

COMMON QUESTIONS AND MORE DETAILS

BUTTONS AND ZIPPERS - These will not be included in your quilt. Anything plastic, metal or bulky will be avoided. Anything that might break my sewing machine will be avoided.

SPECIFIC PARTS OF CLOTHING - I'm happy to use specific parts of your clothing in your quilt. If you have preferences on this, each individual items need to have a note pinned to it with directions on it.

Please don't have a master note that mention all the clothing with preferences, I'm not familiar with your clothing and will have a hard time knowing what you mean, so please include notes on individual pieces.

If the specific part of your clothing is obvious, you do not need to leave a note. For example, if the very center of a shirt has your kid's name or an emblem or an applique. There's no need to pin notes to every piece of clothing (doing so can be very burdensome for me).

Keep in mind that just because you mention a preference, doesn't mean I can do exactly what you are after. Cuts of clothing will determine what I can and can't do. I really appreciate your understanding on this.

LAYOUT - I don't allow preferences on layout. Please do not send requests for any piece of clothing to be in any specific place on your quilt. These requests will be ignored.

DELIVERY - I get a lot of emails asking if I've received your clothing. While I don't mind going to find out, please keep in mind that memory quilts are the brunt of my business and I have a whole wall of boxes of clothing for orders. Going to find out if I received your clothing is an ordeal. I don't mind doing so, but please give me some time to do it or get tracking on your shipments so that you can know for yourself that it's been delivered.

Please make sure on the OUTSIDE of your box, you've included the name your order is under. This is overlooked quite a bit and I have many boxes without any name on them that I do not know what order they go to. These boxes have to be ignored until you contact me (I can't contact you because I don't know who the box belongs to).

Your box of clothing will not be opened until I am actively working on your order. This is in effort to keep your order from being mixed up with a different order.

Do NOT require signatures when your clothing is being delivered to me. I will not be available to sign and will not go collect your box from USPS, UPS, or Fedex. I live much too far out to be doing this. Please just ship regular mail to me, no signature required.

**********************************************

HOW ITS MADE:

All my items are made one at a time on a small scale. You are truly purchasing a handmade item.

All edges have been cut and frayed, washed and dried to give it a nice soft, cozy feel.

**********************************************

CARE:

Machine wash and dry.

    Amazing memory quilt

    Posted by LG on 5th Mar 2020

    Wow! I ordered 2 of these one for each of our daughters. Sent in a bunch of old baby clothes and tshirts from different events. Melanie took great care to make sure each of the girls quilts hadas many squares of the stuff I had sent on them. And the girls absolutely love them and love the memories from seeing all their outgrown shirts. So totally worth the wait!! Thanks so much
