Baby Clothes Memory Quilt 48x60
- How it works
All parents have them...favorite clothes that remind us of when our children were little: coming home outfit, first steps, first birthday, holidays, etc. We take those precious memories and turn them into a keepsake quilt that will surely become an instant heirloom.
Clothes are cut to 6x6-inch squares and pieced together to form an original patchwork quilt. We can also incorporate larger graphics from t-shirts and other clothes if requested. Measures approximately 48x60 inches square (about the size of a couch throw). We use 100% cotton batting; reverses to coordinating cotton fabric.

For years I've been looking for a more meaningful gift for my mom. Around the same time I met Jen from the Patchwork Bear, my mom passed my baby clothes on to me, and I knew I'd found the perfect keepsake for her. The Patchwork Bear team handled every one of my baby clothes with finesse and care, with a beautifully pieced finished quilt. The hardest part was waiting until Christmas to give it to my mom, but when I did, her reaction made it worth the wait.
Memories of me as a baby came flooding back as she smoothed her hands over the pieces of bib, onesies, and dresses. The story of that first year of my life was told so well in a stunning piece. My mom couldn't wait to show her friends and hang it up on the wall in my childhood bedroom. It was truly a Christmas we'll both remember, and I know I gave her something that feels as special as she's always made me feel.
This is my second quilt I have had made from this company and both times they absolutely exceeded my expectations! It’s hard sending some of the most important items of yours off into the mail to someone you don’t know, but they send you something even more special back to you! Both of my babies quilts came out beautifully. Thank you so so much! If we have anymore babies in the future I will 100% get another!!
