Custom quilts are priced individually as each one is so unique. Custom designs can include individual block designs, stitch-in-the-ditch, outlining, cross hatching, freehand quilting designs, or use of templates. Many of these include marking, measuring and centering which is more time consuming but extremely enhancing to your quilt. A great choice for everyday quilts that will be handled, washed and loved a lot.

For Show quilts are also priced individually for those wanting to enter local or guild quilt shows or just want an extra special quilt for your home. These quilts usually include stippling, background grids, feathers, and/or denser free hand quilting designs. This type of quilting is very labor intensive as it requires a great deal of marking, measuring and accuracy. Create prize winning designs for your quilt.

♥ Quilt Rescue—
Prices quoted per quilt
Pat will “rescue” your unfinished old or new quilt top. So many quilt tops are sitting in a closet just waiting to be completed and enjoyed. Whether you just need a border added or a stack of blocks completed into a top, have it finished , layered and quilted so that you can enjoy it.
