Lightbulb Commissioned Memorial Quilt


My mom recently passed away and she has so many clothes that she cherished. I would like to honor her by transforming these into a quilt, and a really cool one at that. I am hoping to have a good amount of details and have it decent sized (maybe 5x6). Please let me know if you are interested, I'd love to have someone take creative liberty and just dive in!

Welcome to QB from Ontario, Canada. The easiest fabrics to work from are cottons. There are lots of tutorials on YouTube if you want to attempt it yourself.

Do you have a quilt shop nearby? I'd suggest contacting them to see if anyone in the area does this type of work.

Did your Mom have any friends that like to quilt? If so, they may be able to help you and guide you as to how to make a quilt from your Mom's clothing. This is such a nice idea and it will be a treasure to you. Are you planning on make the quilt yourself or are you asking for someone to make one for you?
