Each quilt is truly an original with the main focus on “custom” made quilts. My quilts are made with 100% cotton fabric and 200% LOVE. Every stitch is made with care and attention to detail in the traditional style of quilting three layers together; they are well made at affordable prices. There is much excitement in knowing that every quilt I make will be loved and cherished and passed on to future generations. Quilts are symbolic of love, warmth and comfort. Order a quilt for someone you love.

Each square of clothing will be backed with fusible interfacing (stabilizer) to ensure its durability and long life. The backing fabric, framing strips and borders can be a fabric, of your choice. Maybe you have a favorite color you would like to use for the backing, etc. If you wish, I can fully design the quilt, colors and all.

If there are clothing items that are too small for a full size quilt square, I can make an appliqued shirt like the one pictured here:

[Note: There is an additional charge for minky, damask, flannel and any specialty fabric. Included in the price of your quilt, is your choice of any solid color cotton fabric.]


- A Grandmother’s birthday quilt, made with each square in the quilt from an article of clothing from each of her grandchildren. The center square was a swatch from grandmother’s 50 year-old wedding gown, adorned with a swatch from her veil.

- A special quilt made from a newlywed couple’s shirts (his and hers) intermingled into one quilt as a symbol of their lives joining as one.

- A quilt made out of your child’s clothing from their first year of life all the way through quilts made for them using their college colors.

- A tiny cherished blanket sent to me from a customer who had saved it from her childhood. Her request was to use this fragile fabric as the beginning of a full size quilt.

- Quilts made out of the clothing of a loved who has passed on. I’ve had many customers tell me that these quilts feel like a hug from their beloved family member or friend.

- Signature quilts, where each square of the quilt is signed at a baby shower, special birthday, anniversary, or any special occasion and sent to me to memorialize the day by making a quilt out of those signed squares.

- A quilt made for a newborn son, out of the pockets from his Dad’s Firefighter shirts.

- Sorority quilts are fun to make using the sorority’s colors for framing strips and corner squares.



After your quilt is completed we will return any unused clothing items. However, many times there is enough clothing left over to make another quilt. After your quilt or quilts are made, if there is enough clothing to make an additional quilt, I will send you a convo asking if you wish to have another quilt made. Maybe you would like an additional lap size quilt for grandparents or to keep as a snuggle blanket on the couch. There’s always enough to make a matching pillow sham or two. Instead of just returning your unused items, I will ask if you want another quilt or pillow sham made.
