Don’t Toss that Superhero Onesie! New Book - Create Your Own Baby Clothes Quilt - Has Arrived

Top Quilter Pens First-Of-Its-Kind Book Teaching Moms to Create Heirlooms from Baby Clothes

(Phoenix) May 23, 2017 - Moms around the world are picking up their scissors and upcycling their old baby clothes into adorable, modern baby clothes quilts after the launch of Create Your Own Baby Clothes Quilt: Everything you need to know to create a modern memory quilt from your baby’s clothes.

A fast-rising trend, baby clothes quilts are rapidly becoming a popular project. On the heels of the KonMari closet-cleaning craze, moms have discovered that they aren’t ready to part with those adorable baby clothes that hold the memories of baby’s first years.

A baby clothes quilt upcycles those clothes, typically too stained or too worn to be resold, into an heirloom that can be seen and used daily, and even passed down to the next generation.

In her new book, Jamie Wilson – professional baby clothes quilter since 2008 – breaks down the process into step-by-step picture tutorials. Written in response to hundreds of fan requests, she incorporates her best tips and tricks from over a decade of turning baby clothes into quilts.

“Baby clothes quilts are absolutely my passion,” states Wilson. “With a year-long waiting list at Jelly Bean Quilts for a custom quilt, I could not be more excited to have a tool to help more moms preserve those memories and create their own heirloom.”

The full-color, 70 page, spiral-bound 8.5x11 book has over 100 pictures, and a multitude of design options. Designed to be approachable for all sewing levels, she has also included 2 hours of online video tutorials, where she walks through each chapter of the book and creates a quilt from start to finish.

Create Your Own Baby Clothes Quilt, along with the ebook version and companion quilt kit, can be purchased online at Her books and kit can also be found on

I loved this book!!! I am new to quilting and found the book easy to follow. Since I'm new, the step by step instructions, along with the provided materials really set me up for success. I was very proud of the product that I had made! Now I can say that I have successfully sewn a blanket that I could give to my kids and they can say, "My mom made this! -Bookworm

Love it! I've always wanted to have baby clothes quilts made for my kids, but was unsure about my own skill level and was put off by the cost of having someone else do it. This book made it easy and approachable for me to make them myself and they turned out wonderfully. Thank you so much!  -Etsy Customer

Jamie has created the most beautiful quilts over many years. Her ability to teach others is such a gift! -Diane

I have been following Jamie’s work via social media for years. She does a beautiful job on her quilts and really has become the expert in modern clothing quilts. So when she came out with her baby clothes quilt book I knew this was my chance to get a detailed tutorial on how to make a clothes blanket with sound advice. I have used this book, and the principles taught in it, to make a clothing blanket out of my husband’s shirts. I need to collect another seasons worth of clothes for my daughter then I will tackle my first baby clothes quilt. Principles and techniques taught in this book and video tutorials are geared towards baby clothes, but easily adapted for adult shirts as well! – Elizabeth
