Overview

Scrapbooking and stitching—two of today’s most popular crafts—come together in these spectacular, memory-preserving quilts. If you could make a time capsule of precious moments in your life, what would you put in it: Family photos? Notes from your children? Grandma’s beautiful hand-crocheted handkerchiefs? They can all become part of a warm and wonderful quilt to wrap up in or display on the wall. One unique pattern features Dad’s old work ties. Another blanket showcases those fun t-shirts you’ve collected over the years, while ticket stubs from fondly remembered concerts make up a musical motif. Or photocopy picture postcards onto fabric and then cut and sew. The instructions for the creative techniques, plus basic quilting guidance, are all here.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Memorabilia quilts have a long tradition, but recently, they have become an extension of the scrapbooking hobby. Weiss and Causee, who have coauthored many books on needlework (e.g., Log Cabin Quilts), explain the techniques of making quilts out of such things as T-shirts, county fair ribbons, and photocopies of snapshots and postcards. Although instructions are given for piecing and layout, these projects assume some experience in quilt making. For quilters and scrapbookers in public libraries.

The 17 projects highlighted in this book are very inspiring, particularly the "Father's Ties" and "T-Shirt Memories" quilts. Her instructions for printing photos to fabrics however, seem messy and very time consuming. The Avery company makes a very useful product called "T-Shirt Transfer Paper" that works great.
