    Hello - I am new here because I am starting a memory quilt

    Hello.. just joined because I am always looking for ideas and input. I have been quilting off and on for years (more years than I care to think about). I am not serious or heavy into it... usually just work on baby quilts for family and friends. Recently I was inspired to start a new project that has me nervous and I want to do the best job I can on it. Our family lost my nephew in an auto accident and I wanted to make my sister a memory quilt from Jake's clothes. So I came here to learn, be inspired and to keep motivated Thanks

    Welcome. Sorry about the loss of your nephew. I can't imagine the heartache the family is feeling. You've come to the right place for inspiration and advice. The ladies & gents here are wonderful and so knowledgeable and willing to help.

    I am So sorry to hear about the loss of your nephew.
    I have made a tee-shirt quilt, and that type of cotton (t-shirt) needs to be ironed onto a lightweight fusible web. I used a dark tonal background fabric in between and around all the shirt logos. When the shirt logos were not the same size, I added coordinating and contrast fabrics.

    Hi from NC. I'm glad you're here.
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.
