Memory Quilts, Memory Quilt Patterns, and T-Shirt Blankets

July 12, 2018

Have you ever thought about cleaning out your wardrobe and turning those clothes into memory quilts? Or what about creating T-shirt blankets, or even designing your own memory quilt patterns?

The last time I spent time looking through my closet there were so many clothes and T-shirts I had that I had not worn for years. It was amazing all the old shirts I found.

In those T Shirts, I had so many memories ….

Memory Quilts

…. I should have cleaned them out a long time ago!

After thinking about it, and looking through all those patterns on the T-Shirts, I started to become creative. I came up with a few ideas for creating my own T-Shirt memory quilt and T-shirt blankets.

It is not too difficult to make memory quilts from clothing and your old shirts.  If you look, you will also probably discover that there are a lot of clothes you haven’t worn either. There are lost clothes, things that maybe you disregarded, or just clothes you cannot wear anymore.

Memory Quilt Patterns

Besides making my own memory quilt patterns, it is very easy to make a memory quilt for your children too using your kid’s old tee shirts.  A little while back I found a crate full of shirts that none of the kids had been wearing for a couple of years. Come to find out, there were so many cool patterns I saw on those shirts that could be used to create their own T-shirt memory quilts too.




Many of the shirts I found that the kids used to wear still looked like new. In fact, I am not sure they even wore all of them. It is surprising all the clothes we have that we never even wear.

Making Memory Quilts

As I looked through all of the shirts I just discovered, my mind drifted back in time and I reminiscenced of all the camping trips we took, trips to visit the grandparents, the hiking trips, the fishing trips, and all the other numerous places we went over the past 10 years. It is hard to believe how fast the time goes by.

I urge you to take a look and see what you have in your closet, or your kid’s closet. You will be amazed at what you find, and what could make you a memorable T Shirt quilt.  Once you look through those closets and find a pile of T Shirts you want to use for your memory quilt, we do all the work putting the memory quilt together for you.
