Handmade Quilts, Quilted Tote Bags, Quilted Wall Hangings and Travel Bags from Asheville NC

Every item in my shop is handmade by me. They are all one-of-a-kind items. One of the best things about this is that I get to design and create each item, selecting the perfect fabrics to create a beautiful and unique piece of art.

I learned to sew as a little girl, making my own clothes through college. I never realized until much later how special it was to wear custom-made clothing. Sewing was put on the back burner for years as life got a little too busy. Since relocating to the vibrant city of Asheville in Western North Carolina, I've rediscovered sewing and quilting (and shopping for beautiful fabrics). I love creating quilts that are simple, clean and modern.

Making a quilted piece is an investment of time and money ... starting with the design, selecting the (oh so beautiful) fabric, washing and caring for the fabric, cutting and piecing the quilt top, making the quilt sandwich with cotton batting, quilting the quilt and finally adding the binding. Each quilt takes a lot of time to become a quality piece of craftsmanship. But it's a fun and creative process that results in a one-of-a-kind piece that has been handmade especially for you.

I have two other Etsy shops. One where I offer my art and acrylic paintings - ArtbyMerrieD ( and the 2nd shop where I sell crocheted hats, beanies, headbands and scarves - YarnHeadz (
