Shimmer Quilt

$895.00

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.

Handmade quilt in bold and bright colors such as jewel tones, energetic and eye catching prints, made to order in your preferred size and colors. Shown here in queen size. Any beautiful fabrics can adorn this complex quilt, composed of 49 individual pieces per block!

Three different options are pictured in this made to order listing, but any color scheme can be accommodated.

Although this quilt takes a little longer to make, I thoroughly enjoy the process of artfully coordinating fabrics to create the collage of color. This quilt is even prettier in person, and the fabrics are ‘eye-candy’ to any who see it!

If ordering this quilt, please choose the color you would like on the borders from the drop down menu. Other specific details regarding color can be discussed in messaging throughout the quilt making process.

All fabrics used in my quilts are highest quality 100% quilting cottons. Batting is 80/20 premium cotton/poly or 100% cotton. Backing fabric will be a coordinating or neutral print.

If you are interested in this quilt, please use the listing menu to order your preferred size. After your order is placed, I will contact you shortly to discuss colors and fabrics. Or you may message me with questions anytime!

Quilt orders are filled in the order that they are received.

Quilts make thoughtful and lasting gifts for any special occasion – think gifts for Christmas, birthday, christening, graduation, shower, housewarming, holiday, bereavement, wedding, or simply to let a special someone know you care.

All quilts are created by one person, in my non-smoking studio, never out-sourced, and ready to be enjoyed for years to come.

HOW ITS MADE

The top layer of the quilt is the main design element, fabrics carefully chosen, cut, and sewn together, piece by piece, on my Bernina machine. 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 premium 80/20 cotton/poly batting or 100% cotton.

The bottom or back layer of the quilt is made of only one fabric, which can be a solid or print that coordinates with the top.

All three layers are sandwiched together, then carefully quilted in an all over design pattern, for the quickest result. Customer can have input on quilting design if desired.

***********************************************************************************
CARE INSTRUCTIONS

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

Shipping is FREE in the U.S. mainland states.

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.
