I've made this 48" x 70" throw quilt for a number of people...that difficult to please teen...that eager 'tween', that 'sophisticated' little girl yearning to be all grown up....just about anyone will delight in receiving this happy, colorful pink and grey little number!!

Modern pairings of this colorway is bordered with a wavy pink, grey, white and black print.

I bound this quilt with a pop of black and white polka dot. I always machine stitch my bindings with a double fold/double stitch for added strength as the edges of a quilt are usually the first place to show wear and tear.

The backing is a more subdued, (but classy) grey and white polka dot print.

Look carefully and you will find kitty cats, fleur-di-lis, houndstooth check and more lovely prints sprinkled around this quilt.

It is lovely and soft, but sturdy, and sure to be a hit with whomever receives it

I used Soft and White polyester batting - the fabric is 100% cotton.
Gentle cold machine wash, no bleach, gentle warm dry or lay flat to dry.

I sometimes prewash my quilts...this one I didn't, so expect puckering and about 2% shrinkage after the first wash for that much loved look!!

Your quilt will get softer and softer with use and lots of love!


*****I recommend that quilts not to be stored in any plastic bags for any length of time as the natural fibers cannot breathe. For storage, it is best to lay a quilt flat (on a spare bed if available) to avoid fold lines that the cotton fibers can create. You may wish to store them folded on the bias (cross ways) and placed in a cotton pillowcase if need be. Quilts should never be exposed to direct sunlight as fading and bleaching can occur and weaken the cotton fibers.*******

****************PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING - IMPORTANT*******

Many quilts sold are pieced by individuals,( who design, cut and piece the quilt top/ front of quilt), and then send out to be quilted by other quilting specialists who bring the quilt to life with the actual top, batting and backing and the subsequent quilting stitches.
These experts, called 'long arm quilters', work on a industrial sized long arm quilting machine that, in just a few hours on the frame they are loaded onto, can finish a quilt.
A long-arm quilting operator runs the threaded machine over the quilt and creates continuous patterns either produced manually or computer generated digital designs. Long Arm Quilting is a fairly quick, effective, efficient and pleasing manner in which to finish a quilt top.

ALL OF MY quilts,however, top, back, and quilting, are sewn completely by myself on my home sewing machine in my home sewing room.

Please be aware that my look is definitely more 'hand made' and not as pristine as the perfectly computerized machined stitches and patterns - which is achieved on a long arm machine. (and with Hand-Crafted comes irregularities and imperfections , and sometimes more than a few wonky lines or occasional tucks - but with LOVE stitched in every stitch!!)

So again, be aware that my quilts look more' hand-crafted' than 'manufactured'. I spend alot of time figuring out the actual quilting patterns, whether they be my signature 'feather' designs, or a modern 'pebble' motif, echo quilting, straight quilting stitches or free motion quilting to emphasize shapes, people, backgrounds, etc.,

IF this is the look you desire, then you will be pleased with your purchase - if perfection and immaculateness and 'manufactured' is what you're after, then you may want to look elsewhere for your quilts.

I have held your quilt in my lap, my arms and hands, for many, many hours, for many, many days, creating for you an absolutely hand-crafted, by Truelove, quality quilt!

A 'simple' quilt can take between 15 - 25 hours to design, cut, piece, baste, quilt and bind. A more detailed quilt, according to sizes, can take between 30 - 50 hours. A complicated large quilt takes about 70 + hours to complete by myself.

I 'pin baste' my quilts - large safety pins securing the top, batting and backing together every 4 inches or so across the entire quilt surface, before I take it to my machine to be quilted. The pins are removed one by one as I stitch in the ditch and then further quilting stitches.

I then machine quilt every inch to two inches on my quilts which involves a tremendous amount of stops and starts and thread changes. Many of my borders (around the edge of the quilt) - are channel quilted - or stitched every one inch or so. If you actually look, you see that I start from the border edge and stitch only 4 - 5 inches to the quilt edge, stopping my stitching on the outside edge. I then go back, the entire 4 sides of the quilt and repeat. The stops and starts are numbered in the hundreds!! No continual line quilting here!

I quilt on my Husqvarna and/or Brother sewing machine (which can LITERALLY be a pain in the neck (and arms-and back!) with some of my larger quilts!!) using chalked stencil markings or free motion quilting which I make up along the way. This takes a super amount of time which I have to make up for in my pricing, but I think well worth the extremely personal touch.

I have laid awake dreaming at 2 a.m. of YOUR new quilt - from fabric shop -to planning -to cutting - to stitching - to finishing - to packaging - to you!!!! (I guarantee you will be delighted when my package arrives on your doorstep!) I always include a small present for you as a thanks!

With love and cuddles you quilt will get softer and softer with use!

Frequently asked questions about TrueloveQuiltsForYou

At this time I am unable to accept any Custom orders
Most of my quilts are not prewashed so you can expect shrinkage of both cotton and cotton batting up to 3% with the first washing. Washing should be done on a gentle delicate slow cycle, cold washing, no bleach, mild detergent, lay flat to dry and tumble every 15 minutes to fluff. Handwashing is highly recommended for optimal care of a quilt.
My quilts are usually not a standardized bed size. The fabric 'speaks' to me telling me just how small or large it wants the quilt to turn out! :)
Many of my quilts are a large throw size although I have made both larger and smaller as well as table topper size. All sizes are listed to the inch in the item description. Because my quilts are bound and finished, I am unable to make them larger, as has been requested many times.
