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.

Vintage Twin Crazy Quilt

from 799.00

If you have ever even considered making a crazy quilt, some people would call you…well, you know.

This stunning demonstration of patience and embroidery skill dates from the Victorian Era. According to Wikipedia, crazy quilts became popular in the late 1800s, likely due to the English embroidery and Japanese art that was displayed at the Philadelphia Centennial Exposition. “American audiences were drawn to the satin stitches used in English embroidery, which created a painterly surface, which is reflected in many Crazy Quilts.”

Some of the other hallmarks of crazy quilts are the irregular patterns, lack of batting (quilt fill) and random embroidery. Traditional patchwork quilts have geometric designs and repeated patterns, both concepts completely nonexistent in crazy quilts.

This 68x88 inch crazy quilt is close to a twin size and features a variety of embroidery in yarn. If you look at the back, you can better see the details.

Towards the center, the maker has a red heart with an embroidered horse inside. Other features of this handmade in US crazy quilt are the different embroidered flowers.

Crazy quilts are getting more scarce to find in part because some of the first ones made included delicate fabrics such as silk.

The twin-size crazy quilt was stored for many years and is currently being carefully aired to minimize a slight musty odor.

This would make a beautiful wall hanging with additional fabric added to the back to minimize stress on the original quilt fabrics.

To clean, dry clean only with a professional cleaner.
