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.

You're A Quilter When...

So when do you know you’re a quilter? Here are a few tell tale signs from Bluebird Gardens!

Signs You're A Quilter

Tell Tale Signs You Are A Quilter

Thinking about making quilts? It's not for the faint-hearted, and it helps to have a room you can close off!

Here is a fun and simple test you can take to determine your potential for being a quilter:

  • You have a pile of quilting pattern magazines with dog-eared corners marking favorites and ones you think you can try making.
  • You get down just thinking about having to miss a local quilt guild meeting.
  • When you think of having to make a quick exit, you can't decide if family photos or grandmother's quilt will be the first thing you grab.
  • You pick up old cutter quilts at auctions because you want to see the detail work up close and you could make that into a fun vest.
  • At book sales, you end up buying the same quilt book sitting at your bed side - several times!
  • You find yourself popping into fabric and hobby shops just to see what's new
  • in the fabric section.
  • You have a secret stash of fabrics that have been purchased with no particular use in mind except that they would make "a great quilt someday..."

If you have two or more of these signs, you are on your way to being a quilter. Welcome!





...I love your signs that you’re a quilter. I laughed out loud at the one about buying the same quilting book over and over, I’ve done that! My husband will swear I’m still loosing my mind.
