Sew it began…
My paternal grandmother, Nona Landers, made beautiful quilts from her home in West Virginia. She gifted one to my parents and my mother hung it on the wall of my room when I was little. It eventually made its way onto the bed and I loved the feel of it- its weight, the softness of the cotton, the sweet smell. That quilt has been loved quite throughly and with that love and some years on it, it has begun to fall apart a bit. I keep it on a blanket ladder in my family room so I can always look at it and I hope to one day be a confident enough quilter to take on repairing it.
After James came into our lives, I was loving being a stay-at-home mom, but was hoping to find a hobby that would give me a creative outlet that I was sorely missing. A local community college offered occasional night classes like cake decorating, pottery, software classes and luckily for me, quilting. I was hooked in an instant and I have been quilting ever since. The first quilt I ever made was for my sweet baby James but I have been gifting them to people ever since (whether they wanted one or not, really).
Now, I find that I have a bit of time and a whole lot of fabric, so I am offering up a few quilts for sale that are already completed. I would also love to make custom quilts for our family and friends, to keep or give as gifts themselves. It is still a hobby, not a full-time job, so I am not looking to open an Etsy shop at this time but thank you to all of you who have lovingly expressed confidence in my ability to do that.
These completed quilts are available immediately. All of my quilts are made with 100% cotton fabric, cotton batting, and we are a smoke-free home. We do have a dog, so please keep that in mind for any potential pet allergy issues. All of the quilts will be washed before they are shipped and laundering instructions are included to help maintain the life of your quilt.
Disclaimer: These quilts are entirely handmade, and as such, are subject to slight imperfections and variations. Thank you for your understanding.
A Hobby Unfolds…
These are pictures of most of the quilts I have made over the last eight years. Hopefully, they will at least provide you with some idea of the work I have done and could do if you have a custom project in mind. I have assigned them numbers for ease of communication, but please know they are mostly random, not chronological or numerically significant.
