About

Quilted Items Make Special Gifts!

As a quilter for over 20 years, I enjoy the whole process from start to finish. The fabric selection, piecing, quilting (whether hand quilted at 10 stitches per inch or long arm machine quilted), and hand finished bindings are all done by myself. I use top quality fabrics, quality battings (Quilters Dream & Hobbs cotton, cotton blend, silk, wool & bamboo organics) and threads. I am very detail-oriented. The finished product is heirloom quality and with proper care will last many years. I want my Buyers to be as excited about my quilts as I am.

The style of my items runs from traditional to modern. I have won numerous awards for my block challenges entries & quilts in quilt shows with much encouragement from fellow quilters to enter my quilts in competition. I offer a wide variety of styles, sizes and unique items, mainly quilted and/or embroidered, bed quilts, wall hangings, pillows & heirloom Christmas items & personalized Christmas stockings.

Each item is individually created, so each is unique or one-of-a-kind. All made from premium top quality fabrics & thread in a smokefree home. I do not use pre-quilted or pre-embroidered fabrics.

Although we live in Illinois, we spend much time in the Rocky Mountains near Yellowstone National Park where I get to spend undivided time working on my quilts. Many of my quilted items reflect an outdoor and wildlife theme. My other hobby is photography and art.

My embroidery includes many wildlife and dog related items. There are also many options for personalized embroidered quilt labels.

My Christmas items are my most popular and as it gets closer to that season, you will see in my Etsy Shop some very unique and sparkly designs to decorate your home. My personalized Christmas stockings are my most requested items.

So please save my shop to your Favorites as I will be adding more items often - maybe something you may HAVE to HAVE!. Share it with your friends and check back often to see what is new!

A quilt is a gift that is always remembered!

Authentic American handmade individual items by Mary Brader of

**************************************************
A true understanding of the expense & labor in a quality quilt can explain the differences in the cost of quilts.

What makes a Handmade 'Quality Quilt'?
1. Fabric & Threads: Premium quilt shop fabrics, quality battings & good quality threads.

2. Pieced Quilts: Seams should be sewn straight & line up where necessary. The finished top should lay flat & borders even.

3. Quilting: The quilting should be even distributed across the quilt for it to lay flat. A more intense evenly spaced quilt design will prolong the life of your quilt.

4. Quilting Stitches: The quilting stitches should be consistent in size throughout the quilt, whether hand or machine quilted.

5. Batting: The batting should be chosen by the intended use of the item.
Thinner battings are useful for wall hangings or table linens (i.e. placemats, table runners and mug rugs) so glasses or centerpieces will not tip over.

Thicker battings are useful for throws, lap quilts or bed quilts and will accentuate the quilt relief motif.

6. Binding: Bindings should lay smooth and corners should be sharp and square.

Welcome to my Etsy Shop.
My quilted & embroidered items are individually made, therefore there is only one-of-a-kind available of each item.

All of my items are made from new materials and are in pristine condition when they are shipped. There is much time & labor devoted into creating each piece and it would be disheartening to incur damage during the shipping process. That is why I ask that if there are additional questions about an item to convo me prior to purchase to eliminate an unnecessary need to ship. I would appreciate the opportunity to answer any questions you may have or receive your comments.

After a purchased item is received, please convo me to let me know it arrived safely. Positive reviews are always welcome.
