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.

The Original White House Cookbook

from 39.95

I have to confess, I can get lost in this 1984 printing of the 1887 White House Cookbook "A comprehensive cyclopedia of information for the home." Besides recipes - how about Huckleberry Pound Cake - this cookbook features "toilet and household recipes, menus, dinner-giving, table etiquette, care of the sick, health suggestions, facts worth knowing,etc.' - all the narratives and even typographic errors of the first one form 1887 so the reader is getting a "flavor" of the times. Spinach, for example, for complaints of the kidneys. Asparagus purifies the blood. Red ones are an excellent diuretic and white ones are recommended raw as a remedy for insomnia. Shipped with an adjustable daisy cookbook holder in case one wants to immediately try some of the recipes. Great gift for that cookbook, or history buff, on your gift list.
