In this book, Linda Causee has us flipping through the old photo albums, digging out collections of buttons and brooches, and sifting through drawers of handkerchiefs to find great mementos to stitch into quilts. Even grandma’s recipes and dad’s old ties make a showing.


Causee’s wedding quilt (page 6) is striking with black and white photos framed in black and offset by bright blue fabric, which I imagine was one of the colors in the couple’s wedding theme. There are complete instructions for preparing fabric for inkjet printing yourself, as well as for using prepared fabric sheets or iron-on transfer paper to bring your photos to life.


There’s a Christmas tree quilt that highlights your family’s holiday recipes, log cabin blocks made with old ties, and photo quilts that chronicle your kids’ lives or even your favorite movies. A memory quilt can be a really beautiful way to display vintage buttons or sentimental charms by stitching them in the center of each block – it’s sure to be lovingly passed down from generation to generation.
