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.

From Bluebird Gardens To You - or Them!
After you place your items in your shopping cart, you will have the option to designate what kind of custom embroidery you want, what items you want gift-wrapped, what you want on the gift card and where you want it shipped.

Shipping and handling will be added once you check out. Some items will include shipping and handling to continental US in their listing.

You will have several options on how you want it shipped, including gift-wrapped, which is an additional charge. We will also be glad to ship to a different address. Either way, our shipping includes a free gift card, just let us know what you want on the card.

Want to see how your custom quilt or gift looks before it is shipped to a different address? For $2, we will take several photos and send them to you so you will see your finished gift.

How Soon Will Bluebird Gardens Items Arrive?

We ship as soon as we have items personalized or otherwise customized, which varies from 7-14 business days from when order details are finalized.

For ready to ship items ordered with credit cards and Pay Pal, shipping is normally 3-5 business days from when order is placed. Sometimes we can ship overnight for an additional charge.

If you are buying items for a specific occasion or date, please make sure we know so we can make sure the items arrive on time. Additional shipping charges may apply. We will contact you about those charges either by email or phone.

If paying by check, shipment will normally take place within 20 business days. Please plan ahead and give yourselves at least an extra week to make sure the shipping carrier can get your items to you.

For all shipments including shipments to other locations, I will email you confirmation that the gifts have been shipped and give you a delivery confirmation number you can use to track the package online at US Postal Service, UPS (brown) or whoever does the shipping.

All Bluebird Gardens Items Carefully Packed
All items are carefully wrapped in protective materials as appropriate:

Quilts, lap quilt throws, throw pillows, Raggedy Ann Dolls and other fabric items are shipped in plastic "envelopes" or plastic bags to protect them during shipping. DO NOT store quilts, throws, crib and baby quilts, pillows or dolls in these bags, they are temporary to protect the item during transport only.

See our quilt care guide for how to care for your quilts, including how best to store your handmade quilts. Not in the plastic bags!

Vases and other breakable collectibles are wrapped in protective bubble wrap, peanuts, shredded recycled paper or styrofoam packing.

Howard Furniture Care and Refinishing Products are also shipped in temporary plastic bags for their protection. Because of US Postal Service restrictions, these products are shipped regular parcel post mail, which may take up to 15 days to arrive at their destination.

Depending on weight, recipe books and collectible books are shipped either First Class or Media Materials rate  unless it needs to arrive for a special occasion. Let us know when and where it needs to be shipped so we can ensure it is shipped on time. Additional charges may apply.



Baby quilts are shipped with a book or toy that compliments the quilt and delivers your best wishes on a free gift card.

We recycle boxes in good condition so check the address of origin when you receive your box.

My family received their gifts last weekend.
Just wanted to tell you how delighted they were with their stuffed animals with the (personal message) cards. Thanks for making this holiday extra special for them. And for me, too....
