Melanie's Profile

About

Hello! I am Melanie, the homebody behind Southern Charm Quilts. Welcome to my shop.

You will find lots of quilted goodies in numerous fabrics that are sure to become the focal point in any room, from the crib to the king size bed. I LIKE color, I LIKE patchwork, and I'm sure you can tell

My quilts are made with 100% ALL NATURAL cotton in every layer (with the exception of the PLUSH quilts). There is nothing that I like more than a natural cotton. Its so soft. Its so fresh. And I've had several batches that have been so pure that I've actually picked seeds out of it.
I live here in Alabama and when I turn down a road and see a field of cotton, I like the feeling of knowing that the cotton we grow right around here is the same cotton going into each one of my quilts. Pure earthy goodness…

Why buy handmade?
I took a trip to Italy one summer and I was standing in front of that church (I forget the name) at St. Marcs Square, waiting in an endless line to go inside and look around. I'm taking pictures of course and I notice these small flower carvings all the way down the length of the church. If you look carefully you will see that each flower is unintentionally a bit different, no two were the same. Each one had been made one at a time, hand carved or chiseled.
Thats exactly what you are getting when you purchase my quilts. A quilt that I have made one at a time, and though sometimes I use the same fabrics, no two can ever be exactly the same. There are always these small differences that you don't always catch at first glance.
You are getting something that you cannot go into a store and purchase, something that cannot be recreated, something that is not overproduced in a factory and made with machines, and something that you can cherish for a very long time.

Southern Charm Quilts began in 2008, though I have been sewing from a very early age. All the designs you see are my own creations. Everything can be altered or custom made to suit your own individual tastes, so please dont hesitate to email me with your ideas.

I work from my clean, smoke free, home studio and all items receive my utmost care and attention. All items are created by me, though I have recently had to hire help cutting and pinning and some of the smaller things to keep orders on track.
