If you would like a custom quilt, made just for you, to use in your home or give as a gift, here are the options available from me.
Quilting has been experiencing a revival in interior design and decor. Many large linen companies are now offering wholecloth quilts at very reasonable prices. However, these are mass produced, the quilting is not always 100% and you are looking for something a little more unique.
I make bespoke quilts using hand dyed fabric and work with clients to determine the design that will suit their needs best. Sizes range from crib size to king size quilts, and are handquilted (machine guided) by myself. No computerised systems, all handguided.
Of course, this also ties into the printed quilt tops, where a top can be custom designed and quilted to your needs.
Printed quilt tops
All the printed quilt tops that I offer for sale on this website are available for quilting by myself. Contact me for a quote, indicating your chosen quilt top. I require that you buy and pay for the quilt top before I quilt it, and the balance will be due before I courier or deliver the quilt. Some of the quilt tops can be combined to make a larger quilt than the indicated panel size, so if you want something bigger than the offered size, consider these:
There are many more to choose from. If you're not sure, contact me for more options.
The cost of the quilt will include batting, backing fabric and quilting. I usually use hand dyed fabric that I have made to coordinate with the quilt top, and standard lightweight batting, but this can be adjusted according to your preferences.
I have a particular method that I use, and you need to make sure that this is something that appeals to you. Essentially it is a crazy patch quilt created completely on the quilt frame using raw appliqué-like techniques and couching.
Each request is quoted individually since the nature of the quilt ensures that it is never the same as another. Also, the size will be dependent on what you have available to use, but I don't suggest doing this larger than 2 x 2m if you want to use it. A wall hanging is perfect is you're looking to preserve it.
