Karen's Memory Quilts

I recently had the privilege of quilting three very special quilts for Karen. Karen made three unique memory quilts for her sisters out of their father's shirts.

The first one based on the Crossroads quilt block, got the London Fog pantograph.

The second one got the Gingersnap pantograph.

The third one, based on the "Chandelier 2 " pattern got the Plush pantograph.

When Karen came to pick up the quilts she brought along the labels she had made, and I think they are awesome.  She used the shirt collars in the most creative way.  Each of her sisters selected a different photo of Dad that was meaningful to them.   Karen also included the pattern inspiration and date as well as my name as quilter under the collar.  The quilts were already aweome but the labels are just the icing on the cake!


  1. These quilts and labels are so very special. Thanks for sharing, Karen and Lori

  2. Those are the loveliest memory quilts I have ever seen and the labels are perfect!
