Personalized Custom Orders
All of these quilts were custom orders for customers looking for a personalized quilt for themselves or as a gift.
Monsters and Aliens
This quilt was requested for a 2yo grandson. The fabric was chosen by the customer because it was designed by her good friend. Shhhh---it's going to be a Christmas gift and I hope he loves monsters and aliens!
Whether a youngster or someone more mature, if you are into flying or aviation, this quilt is for you! This one was made for a lifelong pilot working at our local airport. The stripes even have little airplanes in them!
I Think I Can!
A repeat customer has a new grandson on the way so she gave me carte blanch to make a baby quilt. This Little Engine That Could fabric was perfect for this design. Can't wait to see the little guy wrapped up in this crib quilt.
A friend and her hubby sent me 30 t-shirts to put their memories into a quilt. It was such fun putting it together like a puzzle piece, adding some 70s/80s fun fabric between the shirts (& tye-dye fabric on the back). I'd love to get YOUR t-shirts and make one just for you!
Another repeat customer had some of these fabrics and I found other ones in the same line for her to make this fun square in a square eclectic quilt. Do you have a favorite fabric? I can make the same for you!
Another grandbaby was on the way (must be the season!) so my customer wanted something fun to have ready when he arrived. I went with cute dinosaurs because what little boy doesn't like them? This quilt works great with a fabric line with panels to showcase that special item.
Welcome Baby Boy
A customer saw a pink quilt in my Gone But Not Forgotten section and requested it in all blues for her newborn grandson. We decided on a truck and tool theme and I think it came out fabulous!
For this one, the client had these 30-year-old embroidered squares she wanted made into a quilt and gave me free rein on pattern and other fabrics. When I saw these florals, I knew they had to go with the squares. I am SO in love with this one, I hated to let it go!
Circles Brush Holder
An art friend requested a brush holder for her paint brushes and I said SURE! The front is made of duck cloth which is a sturdy, thicker waterproof cotton. Then I added a fun inner fabric before sewing individual slots for each brush. When you aren't using it, just fold the top down, roll it up, and tie it with the handmade ribbon.
This client saw a pattern she really liked and asked for it in these colors. There are over 250 little squares in here--whew! Once it all came together, she was absolutely thrilled! I love taking a clients's ideas and bringing them to life.
A friend is expecting a baby boy in December and told me she was decorating in the Lion King. Of course, I had to find that fabric and make her a cute baby quilt. I put soft Minky fabric on the back that will wrap the baby in comfort and love.
A repeat client found this antique broadcloth handstitched red/blue quilt at an estate sale--I am just amazed with the hand work on this! We decided to turn it into a duvet cover with button access so I added a few borders to fit the size we needed, added ties inside to hold the comforter she has, and added an inset of hidden buttons. Taking something and turning it into a usable item makes my heart happy.
A dear friend of mine is a dog lover and has had several Schnauzers over the years. This fabric reminded me of him (and his new puppy) so I had to make this lap quilt for them to share.
My Dear Friend
When my mom's best friend fell ill in her 90's, she was pretty much homebound. I thought she needed something to keep her warm in Illinois so this was a custom quilt made just for her. I loved the vintage fabrics and they reminded me of her. It's a great pattern to recreate in your favorite colors!
A friend was looking for a quilt to add to a decorative ladder in her newly decorated home so I made this for her in soft and fuzzy Cuddle Minky fabric. Not only does it look great on her ladder, but it's super cozy for her and her little boys.
