“At Quilting Daily, we’re known for our nontraditional approach to quilting, so of course we wanted to think of how we could enliven the concept of a memory quilt. In this free eBook, we’ve assembled some of our favorite projects that incorporate personal images, writings, and mementos in artful and unusual ways.” Pokey Bolton, Editorial Director.

Memory Quilt Ideas: Scrap Wisdom

Memory Quilt #1

Scrap Wisdom: Collage Journal Quilting by Margaret Applin

Experiment with paper and paint techniques, applying them to collage and journaling. Get inspired by the mixed-media world and play with backgrounds of photos, paint, stamping, images, screen printing, pieces of scrap, and more. Add words that inspire you or bring back meaningful memories. Bring your designs back to fabric and incorporate them into finished quilts. Enjoy!

Memory Quilt Ideas: Holographic Memories

Memory Quilt #2

Holographic Memories by Wen Redmond

With your computer, printer, digital camera, and imagination, you can create the effect of holographic pictures and design beautiful photo memory quilts. These unusual pictures are multi-level so when you view them you see a 3-D image. The top layer is a photograph printed on transparent silk organza. The bottom layer has the very same photograph transferred onto a backing. The top layer and the bottom layer seem to move separately as you walk around the photo memory quilt, giving the appearance of depth. You can use a commercial shadow box frame to finish the pieces or make them into works of fiber art that are framed using stretcher bars.

Memory Quilt Ideas: Memory Narrative

Memory Quilt #3

A Memory Narrative by Judy Murrah

This is a perfect photo memory quilt project for beginner quilters who are still getting used to working with fabric and batting. Since these collages require minimal measuring and precision, they’re a fun and easy way to experiment with fabrics. Use old photos, quotes, poems, jewelry, buttons, and other trinkets to create your own memory narrative. A tulle pocket can be attached on the back to hold invitations, photos, or other flat memorabilia.

 

Memory Quilt Ideas: Canvas Books

Memory Quilt #4

Canvas Books by Alisa Burke

Create a book full of photos and mementos with canvas. The versatility of canvas makes it the perfect material to use for numerous projects. It can be painted, layered with collage, cut, ripped, sewn, and transformed into all kinds of wonderful projects. Not only can you sew into the canvas pages, you can treat each and every page like a work of art by adding layers of paint and even printing photos onto the canvas.

 

Memory Quilt Ideas: Memory Narrative

Memory Quilt #5

Stitched Layers by Patricia Gaignat

Blend mixed media with stitch to record your memories. Experiment with some canvas, gesso, and paint to design out of the ordinary custom quilts, incorporating memories, souvenirs and feelings into a piece of art. Your work will look like a portion of a journal, allowing you to record conversations, thoughts, events and atmosphere into one piece of fabric art.
