CUSTOM LEAD TIMES FOR THIS PRODUCT APPLY
Memories in Threads Collections - including our Sammy "Square" Quilts - are the pride and joy of our collection. Featuring the clean and modern large square design.
Our Sammy quilt boasts a clean and modern look with 20cm x 20cm finished squares as each panel. Making up the width and length of the actual quilt. There is no bulky borders taking away from your clothing used within the quilt. We want your clothing to do the talking and show justice for the top of the quilt.
Each panel is ditch stitched in the square seams to the batting only - making your clothing top layer attached to the middle layer batting. Leaving the backing fabric free of quilting lines. We do not offer or complete full quilting through all layers.
The backing is not ditch stitched to the front of the quilt. Just a nice clean edge with a top stitching all the way around approx 15mm in that is visible on the top and bottom of the quilt.
Each quilt has one Cotton / Bamboo internal batting. Approx 2 to 3mm thick. Standard quilting batting internal. The overall weight of the quilt varies depending on garments used and the backing selected.
As always our Heirloom Keepsake Quilts are completed with options for you.
MATERIALS - YOUR CLOTHING PIECES ON TOP and your selected backing for us to provide.
Your choice of backing -
Simple print 100% cotton backing - to co-ordinate with your clothing used on the top.
100% polyester textured minky or minky dot. Once again sourced to a colour of choice (selected colours available)

Due to kids garments sizing anything under size 0 will not be able to be used back and front to reduce the amount of garments.
ADULT GARMENTS -
Same as above - but with the greater ability to double up and triple up on the squares. So you can reduce the amount of garments needed by half or a third based on doing this.
Each panel needs to be 22cm x 22cm to allow for seam allowance. If you are unsure of the sizing needed and if your garments fit - please take a piece of card and draw 22cm x 22cm square and use this as a template to check.
(Please note that each quilt sizing may vary if the 20cm x 20cm square design is altered. Please note that price does increase if changes to the squares are made to be smaller to accommodate smaller baby items. For example this item shown has one square every second row split into 4 - this is at an additional charge - AND A CUSTOM INQUIRY FOR PRICING IS REQUIRED)
