March 15, 2009 - PRLog -- Looking for the right gift? A Memory Quilt is a meaningful and functional gift for celebrating an upcoming graduation or rite of passage. Most everyone has a closet stuffed with favorite items that are not easily discarded and can be used to make a Memory Quilt.

Using her wealth of experience quilt artist Louise Silk skillfully transforms the clothing and textiles of your choice into a unique memory quilt that becomes a visual history.  She creatively transforms t-shirts, clothing, ties, and wedding dresses, into lap or bed quilts, or wall hangings, pillows, shawls, or baby quilts.  Prices for a 50-inch square quilt start at $275.00

In today’s challenging environment Memory Quilts have added value transforming unused goods into something more valuable than their current state. This is called upcycling. Help the environment and enjoy the pleasure of giving a Memory Quilt that will be cherished for years to come.
