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 from.  Please do not send more clothing than the coordinating squares number for each quilt size.  No worries on the size of your clothing, be it baby or adult.  No worries if you do not have enough clothing.  I'm happy to add in fabric, it actually helps the quilts look a little more cohesive when I do.


top layer- your clothing. If you do not have enough, I'm happy to supplement with fabric, but let me know.

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

bottom layer- 100% all natural buttery soft cotton the color of oatmeal.  There are additional backing options to choose from in the box below.

All rag quilts come standard with ivory cotton muslin (it gets softer and softer with each wash).

If you prefer me to colorfast dye your ivory backing another color, please purchase the add on for the dyed quilt backing in the options below.  Make sure you leave a note about the color you prefer.


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. 


You can send any kind of fabric or item with the exception of:

  • silk
  • swimsuit
  • hats, tobaggans, bonnets
  • underwear
  • anything with sequins or beads (this tears up my sewing machine)
  • socks
  • crochet items

If you do happen to send these items along, please understand that they will not be used.


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. 


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.  In the individual blocks, I will not use zippers, or buttons or any hard seams (these tear up my sewing machine).


DELIVERY- If you are interested in knowing if your box of clothing has been delivered to me then please purchase delivery confirmation on your end. I have approx. 30+ boxes of clothing for memory quilts from customers and its hard for me to tell each and every customer that there box has arrived safely. I apologize for this inconvenience, but I hope you can understand.

PLEASE NOTE: 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 deal with this. Please just ship regular mail to me, no signature required. If you do require a signature on your shipping it will be returned to you when they cannot deliver it to me and you will be responsible for re-shipping your clothing to me.



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.



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
