Memory Quilts

Remember the good times, the laughter and the joy. As you look back, remember the little unique things about your loved one that made you smile. The apron Mom always used when she cooked family dinners, the favorite shirt Dad always wore, no matter how old it had gotten. Little items like these can be hard to part with because they hold so many precious memories. Seeing them seems to bring back some of the joy from the good times shared with your loved one.

These memories are the reason we developed the Memory Quilt, to provide you with a beautiful and lasting way of preserving the cherished items of your loved one. Hand-crafted by a master seamstress right here in West Michigan, quilts are created using a selection of 15-20 of your loved one’s fabric items, including:

  • Shirts
  • Blouses
  • Dresses
  • Blue Jeans
  • Handkerchiefs
  • Doilies
  • Tablecloths
  • Aprons

Memory Quilts are designed to be “lap size” (approx. 45” x 56”), and use only hand-selected fabrics and materials for the highest quality and durability.

At Matthysse Kuiper DeGraaf Funeral Directors, it is our pledge to go Beyond Expectations when serving our families. Our hope is that through a Memory Quilt we can provide you with a lasting tribute to the memory of your loved one.
