What began in 1998 as a weekend trip with my mother to help find quilts for a friend is now a custom gift business. We make custom quilts in hard-to-find patterns, exclusive patterns with the artist's permission, and unique patterns I design. We also specialize in modernizing old favorites, such as double wedding ring quilts and making quilts out of printed photos, mementos, clothing and other fabrics. Baby crib quilts have become harder to find so we offer a variety of baby quilts in those smaller sizes that can easily be personalized with a baby's name and birth date.

Handmade quilts for sale and ready-to-ship quilts are always available for you if you do not have the time for custom quilts. Please browse in our Shop.

Fabrics for Quilts

Stash of Quilt Fabrics

Every quilter has one. It's one of the tell-tale signs you are a quilter, along with not being able to pass by any fabric store without going in.

Buy The Best

To best collect fabrics for quilts, buy the best fabrics you can afford. We've repaired a number of quilts over the years that would have lasted longer if they had been made out of better fabrics.

Although it's tempting to use less expensive fabrics in your first quilt, splurge. Even if you make several quilts later, your first quilt will always be extra special.

How Much to Buy

If you don't have a specific quilt project in mind, get at least one yard. Quilt fat quarters are enticing but you don't want to have to go back later hoping for a few extra inches to finish a project. One yard may also give you enough to exchange at your local quilter's guild meetings.

Match Fabric Tones

When I'm matching fabrics, I take fabric swatches with me so that I can easily match up fabric textures and tones.

Have a Quilt Design In Mind

When shopping for fabrics, it's best to have a quilt pattern in mind. That way you will have exact yardage measurements you need to find. Not that you won't be tempted to pick up other fabrics you can't live without, I know I do!
