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.

Quilt Patterns

What's In a Quilt Pattern Name?

The name of a quilt pattern depends on several factors including history of the quilt, where it was made and what colors and designs are used.

Quilts may have the same design but different colors, or different- sized designs. Those minor changes will generate a new quilt pattern name.

Quilt pattern names will also change depending on where you are geographically; a quilt from the West Coast may have a different name in the Midwest.

Quilt pattern names change through time so often modern quilt patterns will have parts of older quilt pattern names but they are not the same.

One of the best places to learn quilt names is your local quilt guild. Your local public library should also have good quilt name reference books so you can compare names to quilt patterns.
