Quilting & Patchwork Gifts

Quilting and Patchwork have been traditional ways to recycle old garments for hundreds of years.  It was a practical way to use any use-able fabric from an old shirt that could no longer be worn.  Now, it is a lovely way to remember the person who wore the clothing or a lovely way to remember a span of time like High School.  We can turn grandpa’s old shirts into blankets for family to share, hug and cuddle in and remember him by.  We can take some of those band uniforms & t-shirts and turn them into a warm, comfortable blanket your high school graduate can take to college.  Use a wedding dress or clothing to have Christmas tree skirts made for family members.

Baby Blankets & Quilts $245-$285

Having a baby blanket made from a late loved one’s clothing can be a beautiful shower gift and a way to include the memory of that loved one with the coming of a new generation. Baby blankets made from a treasured wedding dress are also a popular baby shower gift. When made from wedding dress materials, these blankets are more decorative and shouldn’t be used for baby to sleep with unsupervised.  However, wedding dress fabrics make beautiful quilts. Quilts take a considerable amount of time so I have to be able to adjust my schedule to make one. To order pillows or quilts, Click Here for a PDF Order Form for Baby Blanket (36″ x 48″) I charge $245 for a Crib Quilt (42″ x 54″) I charge $285.  Wedding dress blankets do cost a slight bit more because of the challenge that the materials create.

Memory Blankets & Quilts

Quilts made from clothing can be a lovely way to preserve memories.  Memory Quilts are very popular at graduation time.  You can give your high-school graduate a warm memory of their years in school by turning those old t-shirts into a quilt that should last a lifetime.  A Memory Quilt can also be a lovely way to wrap up in the memory of someone you have lost and want to feel close to. Quilts take a considerable amount of time so I have to be able to adjust my schedule to make one. To order pillows or quilts, Click Here for a PDF Order Form for a Lap Quilt (54″ x 72″) I charge $325 for a Twin Size (54″ x 90″) I charge $485

Shipping is an additional $15-$20. For larger quilts, please feel free to call or email me to discuss what you might like. It doesn’t cost you anything to ask and I don’t bite.

Wall Hangings

I have not made a lot of decorative Wall Hangings but it is an interesting way to keep and display the materials from one or several garments. I like them because every one is a challenge.  However, it is also very difficult to price this service up front because I consider each one an individual textile art piece.  My Fabric Wall Hanging pricing is based on either a flat, patchwork and applique or a 3-D sculpture. for a Flat/Applique design Fabric Wall Hanging I charge

  • $155 for an 18″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $195 for a 36″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $215 for a 36″ square.

For a 3-D Sculptured design I charge

  • $195 for an 18″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $235 for a 36″ x 24″ rectangle
  • $265 for a 36″ square

For a fur based wall hanging, I would want to discuss the kind of fur (s) and size before giving an estimate.  Feel free to call me at 937-231-5025

Christmas Tree Skirts

What better way to share an heirloom wedding dress with multiple adult children than by having it turned into Christmas tree skirts.  Every year, this special heirloom is not only beautiful, but meaningful. We can use your garments to make unique Christmas tree skirts. Tree skirts come in the following sizes and prices:

  • 24″ across = $120 each
  • 36″ across = $185 each
  • 48″ across = $225 each
  • 52″ across = $285 each
  • 60″ across = $325 each

Shipping is $15 for the first skirt and $3 for each additional. To order,  Click Here for a PDF Order Form My measurements are based on measuring across the full circle from edge to edge. So, the measurement from the tree trunk to the outer edge of the skirt would be approximately half of the total measurement. This means a 48″ skirt measures 24″ all the way around from the trunk.
