After first seeing one of these onesie memory quilts I knew it was something I wanted to do wi my son’s old onesies. I saved a handful just in casr I ended up actually starting the project. I ended up having another son and was glad to have saved my oldest clotges for him to pass on to his younger brother. After my youngest was born, I decided my life was complete, and am having my tubes tied in less than a month. So if I’m going to save any more baby clothing it had to be for a good reason… And much to my surprise my Mom agreed to help make the quilt for me! Sewing has never beenmy strong point so Iknew I had to enlist my Mom’s help. Living on opposite sidesof the states will make this difficult, but I know we can do it!
Here is where we will collanorate ideas, designs, and ultimately we will end up withour own, unique memory quilt tutorial!
