T-Shirt Memory Quilt
One of the most touching kinds of keepsake quilts is the t-shirt quilt you can turn practically any kind of old clothing into a one-of-a-kind quilt for someone special. The T-Shirt Memory Quilt shows you how to easily organize your t shirt quilt with pressing cloth to preserve any designs or logos. You can piece each little memory together with scrap quilt patterns, and before you know it, you'll have created a quilting keepsake that will last for years. Whether it's for a graduation, wedding, or just a crafty way to recycle clothing, these kinds of memory quilts are the ones you'll want to hang in your home the longest.

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.
Keepsake quilting has touched my life. My mom decided to take all of my t-shirts from growing up, whether they were from soccer tournaments, mission trips, or other significant events in my life, and turn them into a keepsake quilt. Because most of these t-shirts were well worn, this is such a soft quilt to curl up with to read a good book or watch a movie. You can learn how to make a quilt like mine with the sewing tutorial above.
