Announcement    Welcome to the Blue Sky Bubble atelier. Nearly 200 memory quilts, memory cushions and fabric paintings were born here and travelled to the clients all over the world. Many of these keepsakes celebrate motherhood and the miracle of babies. And then there are those that mourn the loss of a loved one and help heal. Both bring meaning to my clients: these keepsakes mark a significant era in one's life.

I believe trusting me to create a keepsake from your clothes is more than ordering a quilt, a cushion, a fabric decor. It is a way of letting go. Clothes will not be clothes any more but fragments, colours, textures, tiny details that trigger a feeling, an emotion, a memory. Clothes will join your daily life in a different form, but the emotions hidden in them will linger. Take your time: you need to be ready to let go, transform & move on. This is not an instant gratification project nor an impulse buy. I create each memory quilt with my full attention to the person & their story. I focus on the excellence of the craft.

    Laura was incredibly easy to work with and the process was very organized and straightforward. She made three quilts and a cushion out of baby clothes, which all turned out beautiful beyond my expectations. She is truly an artist, and one who very much understands the emotional connection we have with the memories in our baby clothes! During the process, I received photo updates, and at the end, the packaging and shipping was professional. It was a pleasure to work with Laura and the quilts, so full of memories, will be cherished for years to come!

    We absolutely love our quilt and cushion by Laura! A great way to utilize our son's most worn and loved clothing from his 1st 6 months, full of wonderful memories! Laura was so easy to work with and we had excellent communication the whole way through! I can't say enough about her beautiful work, but that... we are planning to make another full sized quilt! For anyone contemplating making a purchase, it is worth it!!

Made to order memory quilts, memory cushions & fabric paintings hand-crafted from your favourite clothes.

HOW IT WORKS:

ORDERING A MEMORY CUSHION OR A FABRIC PAINTING: send me a message to start the process. I will provide you with the guidelines how to select and post the clothes to me. There is no waiting list and I will start working on your memory cushion as soon as the clothes arrive. Your memory cushion will be ready to be shipped back to you in 1-3 business days. Free delivery wherever you are.

ORDERING A MEMORY QUILT:
2020 IS FULLY BOOKED! YOU STILL CAN ORDER A CUSHION OR A FABRIC PAINTING.
1. CONTACT: message me on Etsy or via my website.
2. INTAKE: I will set up a date to talk in person or via Skype. We will use the time to go through all the clothing items you have selected and discuss what you want to keep in the quilt, colours & patterns. I will provide you with the payment information once the intake is finished and we know what we will be making.
Intake is an extremely important part of my creative process. I do not leave anything to a chance. I do not aim to surprise you. I want you to know exactly what you will be receiving. That is why I need to get the feeling of your personality, understand your expectations and sense what is beautiful for you. Once that is done I will have the key to creating a keepsake that will be a playful translation of your memories.
There is a long waiting list and an intake booking fee. It is a non refundable fee in case of a cancellation. It comes on top of the quilt price and price of any extra's.
3. PAYMENT: to be made within 2 weeks after the intake took place.
4. CRAFTING: it will take 8 to 12 months after the intake to make your memory quilt. I will make it by hand from your clothes & new fabric (cotton). I use new fabric for the the reverse side of the memory quilt, binding, background, highlights & letters. You choose the colours and I will advise you every step of the way. Will send you the "making of" pictures as I work. It will be fun! I will post your memory quilt by a registered parcel with an online tracking.

DESIGNS guide:
- how the clothes are cut: your clothes can be cut into large or small squares or a mix of both can be used.
- pattern: you can choose the fabrics to be arranged in a certain pattern or randomly.
- appliqué: name of your choice can be put across the quilt.
- embroidery: memory quilt can be signed with a small name embroidery in the corner.

BATTING guide:
- prices are based on a 80%-20% cotton-polyester blend.
- contact me for more batting options.

PRICES & SIZES: full price list and size guide are available on my website www.blueskybubble.nl

PACKAGING:
I do not use any brand new packaging & reuse the boxes that I have or have received from people who know I need them ;-) I do not produce unnecessary labels either.

GIFT VOUCHER
By nature, memory quilts are unique & personal. It is certainly the most original gift for a parent and child for numerous occasions, such as weddings, pregnancy announcements, baby showers, baby visit, (first) birthdays and many more.

    I hand-craft keepsakes from client's favourite clothes in my Blue Sky Bubble atelier in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. I am fascinated by fabrics, patterns & memories, inspired by nature & art, driven by creativity.
