I used skinny black sashing to separate blocks. Love this look. So colorful. So many events, all in one big quilt.

The client sent me t-shirts that had been cut up. They were also partially sewn together. I decidec to make a quilt block with as many shirts as I could.

Creativity needed when customer cuts out their own tshirts. I fused these, then added a scrappy border.

Welcome to my shop. And, thank you for stopping by to take a look. You will find something a bit different in my shop. My quilts are not timid of color. My quilts are bold, with BOLD color schemes created by looking through paint chips, inspiration in nature, buildings, Native America, random guesses, and by putting together fabrics I love.
I came across the word BODACIOUS recently, this describes most of my quilts. definition:
bold, attractive, gutsy, brassy, spunky

My husband and I moved to Arizona in 1981. I fell in love with the southwest. The wide open spaces, diverse culture, vivid colors, spring flowers on the desert landscape. We spent most of our 24 years in Prescott, a mile above sea level, where we enjoyed all 4 seasons, mild winter weather was the best. I spent my work life in sales, and my hobby time at a sewing or embroidery machine. I became a Bernina sewing machine dealer in 1998. I learned more from my skilled customers than I ever imagined. During that time, I took quilting classes in my store, and became obsessed with quality fabric used for making quilts. I began to add 100% cotton fabric to my store. When the vendors came by with fabric samples, I was always attracted to large, bright, and colorful florals and blenders for coordinating.

My love of fabric includes leather, silk, batiks, hand dye fabrics, bold color, large floral patterns, striking fabric designs ~ and the opportunity to see what I can do with them. I like working with the classic patterns and turning them up a notch with lots of color.

I purchased a computerized long arm quilting machine in 2011. As I work with this machine, I feel it is a larger version of an embroidery machine. A fantastic way to apply all kinds of great quilting designs with the help of the computer guided machine. I am constantly learning more and better ways to facilitate the computer program, and adapting designs to my creations for you, the customers. I am fortunate to own a Gammill, and am a member of a creative group of long arm quilters, who inspire me to reach new heights in skill and technique.

I am a member of our local quilt guild, the oldest guild in OK. We make pillow cases for ConKerr Cancer, now Cases for Smiles. We make quilts for the Womens Shelter. We make Christmas stockings for the local food bank to fill for children for the holidays. I have made it a personal goal to make 6 queen size quilts for the womens shelter this year, and 12 pillow cases each month for the Cases for Smiles. I am fortunate to be at a point in life that I can work full time at my hobby, and do some good for those who need some help and smiles.

Please review my customers comments. Their words speak volumes. I strive to make each customer feel more than satisfied with the items they have purchased from me. Repeat business and good reviews are so important in this "handmade" marketplace.

I make a queen quilt for each niece or nephew when they marry. I make gifts for Mom as much as I can. She keeps my quilts on the guest beds in her home. My Mother-in-law is also a frequent recipient of quilted items and pillow cases. My husband has 1 t-shirt quilt and enough shirts for 5 or 6 more. My closet is full of art to wear clothing I have made over the years.

You can see many of my creations on my Facebook page. I keep a growing photo album there.

I have a huge stash of fabrics, please contact me with your request and we will see what we can create together.

THANKS for keeping me in stitches.
I'm sew happy, creating for my new best friends, whom I have never met before. Thanks for shopping with Sew Kreative by Kathryn

Shop policies

Hand made gifts are always appreciated by the recipient. I have given hand made gifts to others all my life. Many of those gifts remain in their homes for years and years and are treasured by those who received them. I want you to feel the satisfaction of giving a hand made gift. These gifts will show that you have put a lot of thought into the gift giving process by selecting something personal and unique.

Quality materials are used. Threads used include, but not limited to, Sulky, Isacord, Guterman, Metrosene, all top quality threads. Fabrics are all first quality, 100% cotton, linen, or denim, independent quilt shop quality fabrics. (There is a difference in fabric quality.) My quilts are meant to be used and laundered gently. No bleach. Pillow forms will not be included with decorative pillow covers. (too bulky too ship) I will note what size pillow form to purchase when your item is received.

I have owned and operated a retail Bernina sewing machine store, and a quilt shop. I also offered BabyLock sewing machines. All products are created on these machines, and where necessary, embroideries are digitized or manipulated with Artista and/or Palette software. Embroidery designs are used per copyright of the digitizer. Licensed embroidery designs such as Disney, Precious Moments, Warner Bros., etc., will not be sewn and sold per their licensing restrictions. Embroidery designs have been purchased from Embroideryonline.com, Amazing Designs, Cactus Punch, Loralie Designs, and others to be sewn and sold on these items. Quanity limitations apply in some cases, per the designer. Many embroidery designs have been digitized by me, and therefore, not restricted by use or sale.

I hope you will enjoy these items for years, as much as I enjoy creating them. Having recently reached the half century mark, I have determined that I will spend the rest of my life creating with my hands and sewing machines, something that makes me smile when I am in my studio creating.

While living in AZ., I created and sold many one-of-a-kind garments. I have made wedding dresses, special garments for a man confined to a wheel chair, band promotors, and taperstry vest for wives of several friends for Christmas. My parents and family are always willing recipients of my gifts, especially, my father, who has many one-of-a-kind vests relative to farming and cattle. I have been sewing since 8th grade and sewing has become my passion. I love creating with a needle and a thread, as long as a machine is powering the needle !!!! No hand work for me !

ENJOY ! and,
Thank you to all who enter Sew Kreative by Kathryn.
