Made With Memories

We all have them: a concert t-shirt from 10 years ago, a worn-in college sports shirt, the complimentary family reunion t-shirt...and they are all taking up space in the bottom of a dresser drawer. Give your sentimental souvenirs the presentation they deserve with the fun and easy Memory Quilt Kit, which not only puts all your favorite t-shirts to good use as a cozy blanket, but also tells the story of your life in a unique way. Created by Mary Mertens. Made in the USA.

The memory quilt kit includes:

- Pre-cut pieces of caramel-colored minkee fabric (super-soft poly chenille blend)
- 1.5 yards of minkee fabric for the back
- Octagonal cutting template
- Fusi-knit interfacing
- Detailed directions

Not a seamstress? For an additional fee, you can send your T-shirt squares to a professional to create your quilt. Information and pre-addressed shipping envelope included in kit.

In June 2004, Mary Mertens spent her teaching bonus on a "Ferrari-esque sewing machine that would do everything but wash the dishes." She made blankets and pillows, which were a huge hit with friends and family, but, unfortunately, didn't stand out at the trade shows. So she went back to the dining room table and came up with the Memory Quilt, the Baby Clothes Quilt and Design-A-Doll.

"If it weren't for these three products, I wouldn't have a company...I want to teach the world to value the past, appreciate the art of sewing and connect generations."

              I bought this as a Christmas gift for my husband. He had all these old, but favorite t-shirts and this was the perfect way to put them to good use. I don't sew so I mailed it off and had it back in less than 3 weeks (during the holiday season!). It's perfect...I can't wait to see my husband's reaction when he opens this gift. The blanket is very soft and appears well made.

                  I ordered one quilt as a gift, and once I received it in the mail, immediately turned around and ordered 3 more!! Love the gift, love the idea, love the results. Receivers of this gift were astounded at the results.
