    As a repeat buyer, I am just as thrilled with this new quilt! Tara is very quick to respond to questions and kept me well-informed of her timeline for delivery. The finished product is lovely and I'm so happy to have this beautiful quilt just as the weather is starting to get colder.

    My quilt was beautiful and my daughter loved it. Tara was very easy to work with. She communicates very well and responds quickly if you have any questions. I would definitely recommend working with Tara.

    Thank you so much for creating such a special memory for my family! I absolutely love the Baby Blanket Quilts you made for me. They turned out exactly how I always imagined them to look. I have to say that it took me years to collect all these baby blankets for our 3 boys, and I’ve saved them for 15 years, always imagining having them made into a quilt - but, honestly, I never trusted anyone with my precious blankets until I met you through Etsy. Your initial contact was prompt, your communication throughout the process was amazing, your attention to detail was perfect and your finished product is first class and was delivered quickly with tracking.
    Thank you for turning our memories of our boys when they were little into something we can enjoy every day now and in the future with them as men!

    Tara made 2 t-shirt quilts for me and I am VERY pleased with the results. She was very helpful choosing complementary colors for the quilts and she was very professional. Tara was able to take my daughter's well-worn t-shirts and create two forever keepsakes!

    Tara is a master at giving a second life to a pile of well loved memories. She was so communicative throughout the process and made sure I was comfortable with the approach for the quilt before moving ahead. Tara also came up with great solutions for several items that I wasn't sure would be usable.

    I purchased this quilt for my husband and he has been reliving the experiences he had that are represented by each panel. It is so much better than having a pile of shirts hidden away in a drawer. I would highly recommend Tara and plan on purchasing another quilt soon!

    Tara is my hero!!! She helped me plan a custom quilt made from fabric squares my family members wrote on. She was so helpful, patient and communicative. I would trust her with any project. Thank you Tara!!!

    The quilt turned out absolutely wonderful. I was notified at every step and shown samples as the quilt developed. Would definitely work with QUILTSplusLOVE.

Every quilt is stitched with memories and a story to share. All you need to add is a little love.

HI there! Welcome.. and thank you for stopping by.

This Etsy shop is the marketplace for the quilts that I am simply compelled to create.

I still draft my own patterns on graph paper (the old fashion way). But sometimes the cutest ideas happen when I sit down and just start sewing.

I love to sew, and I love to quilt even more. I don't know if it's the weight of hand-guiding my quilting machine or the rythmic beat of stitching, but the process of quilting my finished pieces is the highlight of every creation.

I feel a connection with each quilt, and then I pass it on to you. A new quilt is a story of memories to be made and shared. Where will your memories begin?

Contact me to discuss something special, or browse these quilts that are looking for love.
