Memories in Threads Collections - including our "Bordered Sammy" Square Quilts are the pride and joy of our collection. Featuring the clean and modern large square design with a surrounding border.
Our Bordered Sammy quilt boasts a clean and modern look with 20cm x 20cm finished squares as each panel. Unlike our classic Sammy Quilt this features a wide surrounding border.
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 the border is visible from the back.
Each quilt has one Cotton / Bamboo internal batting. Approx 1.5 to 2mm 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.
100% COTTON AS BORDER AS EITHER CRINKLE COTTON OR PLAIN COTTON. WHICHEVER CO-ORINDATES WITH YOUR BACKING FABRIC. OF YOU WOULD LIKE THEM TO MATCH PLEASE CHOOSE THE CRINKLE COTTON AS THE BACKING TO MATCH THE BORDER. THEN THERE WILL NOT BE A COLOUR DIFFERENCE.

Due to kids garments sizing anything under size 00 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)
