Toni's Profile

About

I am the sole Designer, Artist, Seamstress, Photographer, Packager, and Shipper here at Cool Tricks. When you buy one of my creations, you are buying something thought of by my Brain, Drawn with my Hands, Named with my imagination, Sewn on my machine, Quality checked with my eyes, Photographed with my camera, Shipped from my small rural Montana town, and loved with my Heart.

I have been on Etsy for about 5 years in other shops, almost three years as CoolTricks.

My name is Toni and I live in the small town of Plains in Northwestern Montana. My husband and I have been married for 31 years and we have five children, all grown. I am also the granny of five lovely grandchildren in ages 9 through 2 years. They are the testers for all my toy designs.

I have been on Etsy for about 5 years in other shops, almost three years as CoolTricks.

My name is Toni and I live in the small town of Plains in Northwestern Montana. My husband and I have been married for 31 years and we have five children, all grown. I am also the granny of five lovely grandchildren in ages 9 through 2 years. They are the testers for all my toy designs.

I started out making quilts and branched out into toys. I was one of those kids who really believed my toys were alive, maybe this has something to do with why I enjoy making them so much. I have also found Kitchen items satisfying to my soul, the kitchen is the heart of the home and I get to quilt when I make Pot Holders since they have batting in them.

All items are originals designed by me, Toni, and are lovingly made in my home, one at a time, no assembly line involved.

If you have a brick and mortar shop and would love to carry my items, I sell orders of 10 or more, any combination, mix and/or match, for a goodly discount. Depending on your choices, it could be between 1/4 and 1/3 off! Send me a convo and we can work something out.

I love custom work and will do my best to bring your vision to life!

Any custom orders are payable up front, terms may vary a little, convo me for details.

I am willing to ship to ANY country, just message me before purchasing so I can give you a quote for the listing you are interested in.

All my quilts are made with quality quilt shop cottons and quality cotton threads. Brands of batting may vary according to availability, some have a small amount of polyester in them. My quilting designs are done freemotion. I don't draw them onto the quilt or use patterns. I consider this to be “thread doodling” and I love seeing what comes out of my machine-hand-brain co-operation.

Unless stated, all my quilts are pre-washed to get that annoying shrinkage out of the way, also to show the lovely rumples and texture I consider to be so much a part of my designs. My house is a smoke free zone, I do have one pet cat but she has her own quilts and does not lay on my work.
