On Etsy since 2009

A Whole New World Out There

While working as an employee and teacher in three different quilt-shops over a period of 9-10 years, I began to realize that I wanted my own shop. So GreenTurtleQuilts came to Etsy in 2009.

My greatest fun is in designing exotic colorful pillowcases --- ones that redefine what your normal pillowcase could look like. Not for the faint of heart, these creations bring cheer and excitement to a room. I haven't tired of designing them in over 15 years.

For longer-term, more serious design energy, I turn to quilts. All sizes, from wall-hangings and lap-quilts, to king-size bed-quilts. They have this wonderful potential to become family heirlooms, which gives each project a precious quality.

After painting landscapes professionally for nearly 20 years in South Florida, I happened into a hand-quilting class while visiting my mother. She lived just outside Charleston in a little town called Summerville, home to one of the sweetest quilt-shops Ive ever been in --- People, Places, & Quilts..

Working with quilts was so compelling that I set aside my oil paints and began collecting fabrics. I feel so fortunate and grateful to have found this new interest at this point in my life. I spend hours every day in my studio --- and love it.

Thank you for shopping with us. We very much appreciate your business!

My artwork combines my love of color, fabric, and nature. The setting here in North Carolina, with its mountains and waterfalls, provides endless inspiration. My work is done in a spacious, peaceful, smoke-free studio overlooking the Blue Ridge Mountains. My storefront on Etsy keeps me busy when I am not teaching quilting or working part time in my favorite local fabric shop.

Everything in my shop is carefully handmade by yours truly. In addition to items posted in my shop site, I often accept commissions for a particular space in someone's home. I welcome custom orders. Please contact me for special needs, custom color coordinating, any questions along that line. I would be happy to give you an estimate.

Payment

I accept PayPal payments. When you go to PayPal, they will offer you additional options such as debit card, credit card (MC Visa etc.)

Once PayPal notifies me that your payment has cleared their system, I will ship within 1 or 2 days (weekends & holidays excepted, of course). Larger items, like my oil paintings, may take 3-5 days to pack carefully and ship.

All orders shipped within the state of North Carolina are subject to state sales tax, which I believe is 7.25% according to their most recent notifications.

Shipping

Free shipping within the continental US on all FABRIC items (not including Alaska, Hawaii, Canada). Free shipping does not include my oil paintings, which require careful packing and insured shipping. I will find the best rates for you.
