While most folks who contact me through this Custom Memorial Quilts website are looking to have a quilt made for them, I periodically get an inquiry from someone interested in making their own. Usually the questions are about a specific technique or they’ve run into a problem and need a little help.

I’m always happy to answer questions and give whatever assistance I can. With nearly 50 years of sewing experience and over a decade as a serious quilter, I have a wealth of knowledge to share. But I’ve also realized that there is a need for patterns specifically for creating keepsakes from clothing.

To fill that need, I’m developing a pattern series based on the designs and methods I use with the directions written so that someone with just basic sewing skills can successfully create a memorial quilt. Each pattern will include detailed instructions as well as my special technique and design tips and notes. In addition, I’m only an email away if you run into trouble!

All my patterns will be available for instant download through my pattern store on Craftsy.com but I can also email them to you, if you prefer – just send me a message through the contact form.

Check out the Make Your Own Memorial Quilt page to see all my currently available patterns. And if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
