Hand-dyed quilts for looking and loving

Kim E-M Quilts are made to be used and loved but also look great hung on a wall. Inspired by color theory, mixing, and gradations, I hand dye all of my own fabric. The method I use is scientific, based on a ratio of weight of dye to weight of fabric to produce accurate, reproducible colors with minimal dye waste. I use only the highest quality quilter’s cotton or Kona cotton for the tops, backs, and binding, cotton quilting thread, and cotton batting that is free of chemicals, glues and resins.
Each quilt is carefully and lovingly made one at a time. Custom orders are welcome!

    I grew up in Iowa, an only child to parents who are hardworking, creative, and love the outdoors. My dad taught me to sew in 5th grade when we made a quilt out of old shirts. I had no idea then that I would later fall madly in love with quilting.

Welcome to my etsy shop! My quilts are all 100% hand made by me. I dye the fabric based on my own dye recipes, piece the tops, do all the quilting, and hand sew the binding. They are 100% cotton, heirloom quality, one of a kind pieces meant to be used and loved.

Returns and exchanges
I take pride in my work and strive to create the highest quality quilts possible. If your quilt is damaged upon arrival, please let me know and I will fix it.

Colors can look vastly different from one computer to the next. I will do my best to photograph the quilts and describe the colors as accurately as possible. However, If your quilt is not at all what you expected please let me know.
I accept credit cards via Paypal or direct checkout.

NOTE: You do not have to sign up for a Paypal account to pay with a credit card. On the Paypal payment page, look for the small text in the corner that gives you other credit card options. You can use this to pay via credit card directly, without a Paypal account.
I ship USPS with delivery confirmation.

*International shoppers* please contact me for shipping information. I'm willing to ship anywhere and will work with you one on one to figure out the best way to get you your quilt. Local customers can arrange to pick up their quilt in person.
Additional policies and FAQs
I use the highest quality quilter's cotton for my quilt tops, backs, and binding. The batting is Warm & Natural needled cotton, made with no chemicals, glues, or resins.
To dye the fabric I use a very precise method called "Percentage Dyeing" that allows for accurate color and minimal dye waste.

Custom Orders:
I welcome custom orders! If you see a quilt here you love, but would love more in a different size let me know. Most of my quilts can be made in any bed size.
