Legacy Quilts

Legacy Quilts are created using clothing items other than t-shirts. We incorporate the 3D parts of clothes such as collars, buttons, pockets, etc. along with the clothing fabric. 

What can we add to your quilt?

We encourage clients to bring us everything they might want in their quilt. We might surprise you with the long list of odd things we’ve put into Legacy Quilts over the years.

Journey Quilt Company staff will offer suggestions, options, and ideas for you to consider regarding unique items that you may want in your Legacy Quilt.  If you are not sure if an item can be stitched into your quilt, please ask.  The answer is usually YES!

However, there are a few limitations to consider:

It must be laundered according the most delicate fabric in it.  If you add silk, wool, or other non-machine wash/dry fabrics, then the entire quilt must be cared for as a delicate.  If you have 3D items attached, like stuffed animals or buckles, it will be less comfortable to snuggle with, etc.

Turnaround Time

Our normal turn-around is 4-6 weeks.  If you have a firm due date, please let us know. If you require a faster turn-around, 3 weeks or less, a 15% rush fee applies.

Pricing

Legacy Quilts have a slightly higher price point than our T-shirt Quilts because we have to deconstruct, mount, and stabilize many of the items prior to adding them into the quilt.  We have to work around collars, cuffs, pleats and darts.  We also have to pay special attention to stretchy fabrics, satiny sheens, plaids, stripes, etc.  These all play a very important role in the overall finished look of your Legacy Quilt.
