About

Making Heirloom Quilts For The 21st Century

Quilting is such a fascinating craft; such a complex mix of tradition, utility, and artistic expression. The opportunities for learning and new application are endless-- I fall asleep at night thinking through new quilt patterns and I wake up in the morning ready to try out new ideas. I love the challenge of turning a simple quilt pattern into a complex project through color choices, and I'm constantly challenging myself to mix fabric textures. Right now I'm excited to be working on original intricate appliqué projects using a variety of fabrics, and I'm working on a new grand scale venture converting my own nature photography into abstract pixelated quilts using detailed color blocking.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

I love to take on custom work (nonrefundable 50% deposit required upon initial agreement) and I do so as often as my project queue allows at any given time. Whether or not I can take on a project depends on the size of the quilt, the level of intricacy involved, and the availability of materials. If you see something listed for sale that you would simply like in a different color scheme, that's typically a request I can easily accommodate. If you're looking for something truly custom, or if you'd like a one-of-a-kind memory quilt made from articles of treasured clothing, please contact me with details and we'll see if we can work out a timeframe.

Sizing details

Every item listed has exact measurements (inches) listed in the description; if you would like additional information regarding size and/or suggested purpose or if you would like to see additional photos of a quilt, please just let me know. It's never a bad idea to pull out a measuring tape and actually physically measure to make sure a specific quilt or quilted throw will meet your sizing needs.

Care instructions

All of the quilts listed in my shop are made with materials designed to be machine washed and dried. You can certainly hand wash and line dry if you prefer, but please feel free to toss it in the wash on a warm temperature setting and then throw it in the dryer on low heat with confidence. I don't recommend hot water, high heat, or any kind of iron.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Are you having your quilt purchase sent directly to a loved one as a gift? Yay! Aren't you wonderful! I'm more than happy to add a handwritten personalized note with your quilt-- simply add what you'd like your note to read in the "Message to Seller" box at checkout and I'll take care of the rest. I never include any price or invoice information in your order (unless it's specifically requested).

All quilts will be carefully folded and sealed inside a large plastic storage bag; in the event that your Priority Mail box or mailer is inadvertently left in a wet environment, the watertight bag is going to protect the quilt inside.

Custom Fabrics and Yardage

In order to create a special one-of-a-kind quilt, I have had many of these fabric designs privately printed for my own personal use. The fabric itself is not available for sale by the yard.

How long will it take for me to receive my quilt?

Your quilt will be custom made especially for you and you can expect it to ship four weeks from the date of your order. If you type a note in the Message to Seller box at checkout that you need your quilt sooner than the stated four weeks, it WILL NOT make a difference. Thank you for understanding that I'm personally making each and every quilt by hand to your custom specifications, and that kind of attention to detail takes time.
