Whiffletree Farm Memory Quilts

Then and Now 

For the past several years it has been my pleasure and indeed my honor to create Memory Quilts using T-shirts and other clothing items and send them off to grateful loved ones from coast to coast.  I secured orders for quilts via this website as well as Etsy and they were created for sale; for profit.

For the past couple of years however, I have channeled my quilting creativity to volunteerism.  My quilting group at church donates over 100 quilts each year to Lutheran World Relief and charitable organizations in the Rapid City, South Dakota area.

I will continue to create Memory Quilts by special request but will shift my focus to the Calvary Lutheran Church quilting ministry as well as the smaller Baby Clothes Quilts you will find on this website * and * Repurposed Good for You, Your Home, and Your Waldorf-type Doll.


Please scroll down past the schematic drawings of T-Shirt Quilts (Wall Hanging through Queen Size) to the section that describes Baby Clothes Quilts or select "Repurposed Goods" to view items in that category.

Baby Clothes quilts

Memories of her baby will remain in a Mother's heart forever.  But now, preserved in a quilt, a Mother (and her Child) have the memories and visions of that baby cooing and romping at special occasions or at everyday events wearing baby outfits that have been saved and treasured.

The Memory Quilts shown were constructed using 8-inch blocks (rather than 12-inch) to accomodate the tiny size of baby clothes.   An additional inset and border compliments the Baby Clothes Memory Quilt and is included in the price.

The 20-block Baby Clothes Memory Quilt or Wall Hanging measures approximately 50 inches (4 feet) wide and 60 inches (5 feet) long. 



QUILT CONSTRUCTION:  It is my goal to create a Memory Quilt of heirloom quality that the recipient will enjoy using day-to-day.  To this end, each baby item is backed with Pellon Fusi-Knit.  This fusible interfacing helps the fabric hold its shape and gives additional strength.  Quilting quality 100 per cent cotton fabric is used for the quilt sashings, border and backing.  In this case, pink gingham was chosen for the backing to compliment and coordinate with the crib sheet inset.  The quilt batting is also 100 per cent cotton.  The quilt is hand tied with heavy cotton thread.  The Whiffletree Farm signature top stitching is machine sewn around the perimeter of the quilt border(s) for added strength and stability.  A 1/2 inch double folded fabric binding is hand sewn around the entire quilt using an invisible stitch.  

 

 

The 12-block Baby Clothes Memory Quilt or Wall Hanging is a smaller version of the 20-block quilt.  It was constructed using 8-inch blocks (rather than 12-inch) to accommodate the tiny size of baby clothes.  An additional inset and border compliments the Baby Clothes Memory Quilt and is included in the price.

The 12-block Baby Clothes Memory Quilt or Wall Hanging measures approximately 40 inches (3 feet) wide and 50 inches (4 feet) long - a size usually associated with a crib or lap quilt.
