Ohio Star Quilt – Timeless Classic

$615.00

This is an example of a listing I have had on Etsy. I mostly work directly with customers who have requests for colors, patterns and sizes that fit their needs. I especially love making quilts that use customer fabrics that are embedded with meaning. Visit my shop on Etsy to see the designs I offer, but feel free to connect with me for special requests. Prices are based on size and complexity.

The quilting design is free motion stitched, and includes three standard finishing options, including curvy meander, geometric meander, or swirls and hooks. These choices can be discussed and chosen later in the quilt making process. Quilting designs other than the three standard choices will be a 10% up charge.

The batting, layered inside the top and back, is 80/20 Premium cotton/poly or 100% cotton. However different types of battings can be accommodated if desired.

Quilt orders are filled in the order that they are received. Upon placing your order, an estimated date of completion will be provided.

Prices on size variations are listed under the size drop down menu for this listing.

Designed, pieced, and quilted by Bluegrass Quilts in Owingsville, KY, USA.

HOW ITS MADE

The top layer of the quilt is sewn together, piece by piece, on my Bernina 440 machine. Colors and fabric designs are carefully chosen and coordinated prior to cutting and stitching. Creating the quilt top is typically the longest part of the process.

The middle layer is hidden, inside the top and bottom layer, and is a soft layer of batting made from cotton.

The bottom or back layer of the quilt is made a cotton print fabric that coordinates with the top.

All three layers are sandwiched together, then carefully quilted in a pattern that results in a look that complements the looks of the entire quilt.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

All quilts can be machine washed in cold water, and machine dried. With each wash, the quilt will become softer.

Quilting began as a hobby for me in 2007, when my Mother (who was quite passionate about quilting, and creating in general), gave me a quick lesson on how to make a Christmas table runner. At that time, I was a high school science teacher, and with no background in art or textiles, I had much to learn. But, as is the story with many quilters, once you get started, it becomes quite the addiction. I retired early from teaching in 2008, and after making quilts for family members, babies of friends, and every bed in my house, I needed to pass some of these pieces on to others who could use them. Thus began my Etsy shop, Bluegrass Quilts, in 2015. I love designing with color, and working with customers to find the combination of colors and styles they love, then turning it into something they can keep for a lifetime.

Most of the quilts in my shop are offered as custom, commissioned pieces, made to order in various sizes and any color scheme imaginable. Customers typically browse through the many quilt listings in my shop, and order directly from the menu of choices in any size, ranging from crib size all the way to California King. Custom sizes are also available upon asking. Customer input can occur on various levels, from determining fabric preferences, sizing needs, and choosing quilt stitching design. All of these decisions are made by discussions that occur throughout the process, using email or Etsy’s messaging system in my shop. Time for completion varies, depending on my current workload. Estimated time of completion is provided upon request, or after ordering. Currently, the wait time is approximately 4-5 months. Email: bluegrassquilts @ gmail.com (remove the spaces)

The most fulfilling type of quilt to make is upcycling clothing from a loved one and turning it into a quilt. There is a two-fold benefit from these quilts – not only are we working toward sustainability, but the memories created from using a quilt made from articles belonging to one we love are priceless and precious. I recognize and appreciate this when I create these quilts.
