Announcement   Several of my quilts were featured on Manufacturing Marvels® that showcased longarm quilting machines manufactured by Gammill . youtu.be/_PkD0bk2zLU
The first white/brights star pattern is not mine, all the others are quilts I've made.

This shop is a mix of all my sewing interests. A place to share with others...quilts, pumpkins, bow ties...oh my ! All items handmade by me in my home in the Ozarks. I have an affinity for farmhouse quilts - those that use vintage, antique,remnants and thrifted fabrics, much like my Grandma Lena used in her quilts. I had the privilege of attending the Country Living Women Entrepreneurs event in Chicago a several years ago and was able to "pitch my product" (several of my echo quilts) to some of their editors. I've even had one of my quilts published along with instructions of how to recreate your own, you'll find photos in my blog - - http://simpledream2.blogspot.com/ Specializing in homespun cottons, cotton batting, vintage fabrics, old buttons, and zippers. I especially like to use old fabrics to recycle or upcycle. Proud member of Team EcoEtsy, Farmhouse Treasures Team and Handmade by ME Team.............please read policies.

Fresh off the quilter. This beauty is going home today. Created as a gift for a talented man. Even if you don't have a pile of t-shirts for your memory quilt using wonky squares can compliment your shirts and give you the size quilt you want.
Final pumpkin harvest of the year for a special customer. There a several sets of pumpkins in the shop. Great for hostess gifts, office decor, classroom decor and of course centerpieces to warm the look of your home.
Here is a custom quilt made for a local customer here in the Ozarks made his t-shirts and swim trunks used for playing in our beautiful rivers.

About

I have always had a simple dream...........

...of sewing for a living.

I am an award winning, published maker of quilts.

My grandmother, Lena, made quilts that have traveled the world. My mother, Sarah, made my clothes and instilled the love for sewing in me at an early age. I've been sewing since I was a kid, starting with doll clothes, then moving on to my own clothes. For my 8th grade graduation I gave my mother very specific instructions of what I wanted in my graduation dress, she then turned to me and said, "well then, do it yourself"................ and I did. Thus began my love of fabrics and sewing, I bought my first new sewing machine while I was still in high school and began sewing for others. I got more into home decor and crafts after I got married and set up my own home because it was more fulfilling, and less expensive, to create my own things. While my children were young I stayed at home and started a sewing business where I sewed custom items for several interior designers and a couple of local shops.

You know the saying "Whoever dies with the most fabric wins", well I don't want to win. Now I craft my favorite items to share with others on Etsy..........Enjoy!!

Simple Dream quilts is located in the Ozarks, off a two lane country highway, down a gravel drive, nestled in the woods. My view every morning, with a cup of coffee in hand, are the chickens in the field out front or the woods out back.

Fall is my favorite time of year, pumpkins, golden leaves, pumpkin bread, soup/stews, rustic rye bread, camp fires, wood stove heat and the making of many quilts during the Fall and Winter.

Frequently asked questions

Custom and personalized orders

Yes, I make custom and personalized memory and t-shirt quilts.

I do NOT accept returns of any custom order. Once your custom quilt is made it is yours, I am not able to resell it.

If any custom order is cancelled before your custom quilt is started there will be a $25 cancellation fee deducted from your deposit. If you have already shipped your t-shirts/clothing to me and then you have changed your mind I will return your t-shirts/clothing to you and cancel your order. You are responsible for the $25 cancellation fee and the return postage cost (USPS, insured and signature required for delivery). Your deposit (minus $25 and return postage) will be refunded when you confirm receipt of the returned t-shirts/clothing via convo.

Do you outsource your custom orders?

No, all custom quilt orders are made by me. I cut, arrange and quilt your memory quilt in my home studio on my Gammill long arm quilter.

Custom and personalized orders

I use cotton or poly/cotton quilt weight fabric for the sashing/framing, border, back and binding. The color range is decided by you the customer thru convos.

Custom and personalized orders

Turn around time depends on the number of quilt orders I have on the calendar. You are kept informed as to when I can get your quilt started.

Once I start your quilt I can usually create your custom quilt within 3-4 weeks, from start to finish. It does take me a bit longer to create your memories because I have a "day job" that gets in the way of my sewing.

Custom and personalized orders

I ship USPS priority 1-3 day, insured with signature required for delivery. The cost to ship depends on the weight of the quilt. Past shipping has been $25 - $38 to US addresses.
