Every memory quilt and personalised gift set is made with love and care, offering the highest quality products all safety tested for your peace of mind. I love to make special memory quilts, using your child’s baby grows, bibs and small t-shirts, to make a lovely keepsake for years to come, with special appliqued motifs from their clothes, hand finished with cotton binding and all beautifully wrapped to the highest standard. The newborn gift sets are bespoke, simply chose the items you wish to add to your box. They are beautiful gifts made using super soft velour with a choice of pretty jersey fabrics.
