Welcome Friends to Sylvania Quilting!

We are here to provide you with affordable and professional quality machine quilting and custom made-to-order quilts. 

As a small business, we are dedicated to serving the Sylvania, Toledo, and surrounding communities. 

Therefore, we do not accept any mail orders. 


Please also know that each quilt is custom made to order by our owner.  So there may be a several month wait. 

It is our goal that each quilt be made and so carefully crafted that it will last for generations.

What is a Memorial Quilt?

Memorial quilts are quilts made out of a loved one's clothing.  After one we love has passed away, most often their clothing is donated.
Turning them into quilts is a way to save, treasure and celebrate their memory.

These quilts are most often made out of t-shirts, dress shirts, polo shirts, fleece shirts, sweatshirts, flannel pajama pants, flannel shirts.  We can help you transform a box of clothing that was going to be thrown away or donated into a very special keepsake for you and your family that will last a lifetime. (Note: we cannot work with jeans).


There are 2 styles of memorial quilts that we can make for you:

16" squares with or without sashing 7" squares without sashing, but with a border
This is a 3x4 t-shirt quilt made for a gal's father who passed away who was a runner.  This is a 3x4 t-shirt quilt. This quilt was made from a gal's father out of his various shirts and flannel pajama pants.  The entire quilt was made out of randomly placed 7" squares cut from his clothes.  This is a 7x9 memorial quilt.


(for pictures of all our memorial quilts,

please visit our memorial t-shirt quilt gallery page or our memorial clothing quilt gallery page).


Our memorial quilts are a better value for our clients.   How are we different?

  • You receive a free in-person consultation regarding your quilt;

  • All our clothing is stabilized with an extremely lightweight stabilizer.  This makes the quilts more durable and hold up better for washing;

  • We can do up to a full 16 inch square from your clothing.  If it's a t-shirt, this allows the entire logo to be on your quilt, not just a portion of it.

  • Our quilts are completely quilted - not just tied in the corners;

  • You get to pick your own quilting design, from a choice of over 50-100 allover pantograph quilting designs;

  • No upcharge for variegated thread;

  • We are a local Toledo area company.  So when we consult with you about your t-shirt quilt in person, you know who you are dealing with.  You don't have to worry about sending your t-shirts off to some internet website and wonder if you'll ever see them or your money again.


How to get my clothing ready for a memorial quilt: 

  • Wash all clothing before bringing them to your first appointment.  Do NOT use fabric softener or dryer sheets.

  • We can quilt many different fabrics that are in t-shirts - Shiny, plastic-y logos, netting, sweatshirts, fleece.

  • We can quilt many different types of fabric - cotton, shiny athletic shirts, fleece, sweatshirts, heavy cotton polo shirts, and flannel.

  • Note about jeans:  we cannot use jeans in our quilted quilts.
