 Quilts are made with your clothing.  I've numbered how many squares each quilt holds, but note that on some clothing I may be able to get multiple pieces from.  Please do not send more clothing than the coordinating squares number for each quilt size.  No worries on the size of your clothing, be it baby or adult.  No worries if you do not have enough clothing.  I'm happy to add in fabric, it actually helps the quilts look a little more cohesive when I do.

***********************************************
INGREDIENTS:

top layer- your clothing. If you do not have enough, I'm happy to supplement with fabric, but let me know.

middle layer- all-natural, long staple pure virgin cotton batting

bottom layer- 100% all natural buttery soft cotton the color of oatmeal.  There are additional backing options to choose from in the box below.

All rag quilts come standard with ivory cotton muslin (it gets softer and softer with each wash).


If you prefer me to colorfast dye your ivory backing another color, please the option for dyed quilt backing in the options below.  Make sure you leave a note about the color you prefer.

If you prefer luxury soft minky fabric added to your quilt, please choose the add minky option that coordinates with your quilt size below.  List your color preference in the 'note' section below.

Visit this page for options of colors and more details about these two different quilt backings.

LEFTOVER CLOTHING
My goal is to use everything you send me, but if I have leftovers they will be donated and scraps will be thrown away. If you want some of your things sent back to you there will be an additional postage fee and you must tell me before I send out your quilt. Once your quilt is shipped, your clothing is gone.

NOTES
Clothing is cut up into squares the correct size of my patterns. If graphics on your clothing/tshirts are bigger than block then understand that some of your graphics will be cut off. I always try to get the best part of your clothing such as a name, monogram, etc, but understand that this is not always possible

DELIVERY- If you are interested in knowing if your box of clothing has been delivered to me then please purchase delivery confirmation on your end. I have approx. 30+ boxes of clothing for memory quilts from customers and its hard for me to tell each and every customer that there box has arrived safely. I apologize for this inconvenience, but I hope you can understand.

PLEASE NOTE: Do not require signatures when your clothing is being delivered to me. I will not be available to sign and will not go collect your box from USPS, UPS, or Fedex. I live much too far out to deal with this. Please just ship regular mail to me, no signature required. If you do require a signature on your shipping it will be returned to you when they cannot deliver it to me and you will be responsible for re-shipping your clothing to me.
**********************************************
HOW ITS MADE:

All my items are made one at a time on a small scale. You are truly purchasing a handmade item.

All edges have been cut and frayed, washed and dried to give it a nice soft, cozy feel.

Machine wash and dry.
**********************************************
Rag quilts originated in the frontier when people lived too far away to go to stores, nothing could be wasted. They were made with many different types of recycled fabrics. Today we cut and fray them to give them that old timey look.
