Greetings and thanks for stopping by. For those of you who visited my shop previously (mandmbabyboutique) we have retooled the shop and now are offering a select number of top end quilts (all designer fabrics from quilt shops) featuring the most common fabric selections. All of which are home made (of course). My other shop will continue to carry a variety of different types of quilts. Come there (as well) and look around.

I have been quilting for 30+ years and have made more quilts than I can count. I am a nurse, a mother, grandmother and an avid quilter. My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10 and I owned my first sewing machine by the time I was 12 ( I bought it with money from my paper route). I love putting color and fabric together and blending…

My grandmother taught me to sew when I was 10 and I owned my first sewing machine by the time I was 12 ( I bought it with money from my paper route). I love putting color and fabric together and blending textures to come up with unique combinations.

All the creations you see here are made with quilt shop materials and include fabrics from well known designers (e.g. Michael Miller, Henry Glass, Riley Blake, Moda, etc.). I use Warm and Natural (batting) as it has no glues or resins and will not pill or bunch even after being washed a multitude of times!! All quilts are machine quilted on a long arm quilting machine using a meander pattern.

I create quilts in all sizes however I love to create baby quilts. I am more than happy to take custom orders to fit your style, so convo me to tell me your ideas so I can create something special for you!

Below is a snippet from a customer who had a custom quilt commissioned....

"I ordered a beautiful quilt from Maryanne for my twin granddaughters who were on the way, and in the midst of it all my daughter was identified as a high risk pregnancy. Very graciously, Maryanne waited until we were sure everything would be well; and then created an absolutely beautiful, heirloom-quality quilt for our new twin granddaughters when we were comfortable that our daughter and the babies had progressed through the most difficult part of the pregnancy.

Not only did she gift us with her lovely work, she continued to bless us weekly with positive and loving messages of support. While I am always so pleased with the kindness of all the Etsy folks, I have to say that Maryanne went "above and beyond" throughout this whole experience. She is the BEST. What a very special, kind, and caring person she is!! I would highly recommend her work to anyone interested in a one-of-a-kind quilt!"
