I have always said that there are many types of memory quilts – you just have to use your imagination.  I have been researching my family tree for years and thought it would be fun to see what kinds of quilts or quilt blocks were out there for my family heritage.  All I had to do was search for English and Irish quilt blocks and all kinds of ideas and examples came up.  What fun to take blocks that represent your family’s heritage and make them into a special quilt for you or your loved ones.

In their March 14, 2019 Blog post the Quilting Company had Free Irish Quilt Block Designs, as well as the Irish Quilt below deigned by Laura Stone Roberts for you to download.

There are all kinds of individual blocks out there that you can put together for your own quilt as well as full quilt designs.

For my English heritage I found this wonderful Victory Garden Quilt Pattern from Busy Bee Quilt Designs.There are lots of ideas and patterns on the internet for you to research and buy from wonderful designers. Take a look at what is available for your family’s heritage and design something special for them (or you!).

Happy Memories

Trish
