The Importance of Keepsake Quilting
To some, quilting is just a hobby, but keepsake quilting has more meaning behind it than standard quilting. Keepsake quilting has history and memories sewn inside every quilt pattern. You can make a keepsake or memory quilt out of almost anything. Perhaps your grandfather who passed away kept a collection of nice handkerchiefs that are still in good condition. Making a quilt out of these handkerchiefs will preserve his memory and remind you of your loved one. Adding family photos to your quilt is a wonderful way to even further perserve memories of those you love.
