I can make you a custom quilt i.e. a one of a kind, boutique quilt if you will. Whether this is for yourself, or as a gift, here are the options I can give you:
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 if you are looking for something a little more unique, you won't find it in their ranges.
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. The same service I offer my patchwork quilters is what I offer you with regard to printed quilt tops. You buy the quilt top and we have a discussion about what you would like to see as an end result.
This will include:
- Customised label
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 range of methods 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 if you're looking to preserve it.
I have printed fabric designs that are particularly suited to memory quilts. Your choice of memory fabric is then added as appliqué and then quilted. Embroidery can be added too.
