Squares and Stripes Quilt

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, throw or lap size, immediately available to ship, colors suitable for any age or gender, pieced with bright colors of blue white dot fabric and eye catching green.

Backing fabric is a brilliant green blue geometric triangle print of very soft high quality cotton.

This bright and bold colorful quilt measures approximately 52 inches x 60 inches, perfect to use as a lap quilt to snuggle on the sofa, nap quilt, or gift to a child to grow into the teen years.

All fabric is highest quality quilting cottons , and batting is also 100% premium cotton.

This quilt, as all others in this shop, is entirely handmade here in my non smoking studio, and has been custom quilted in swirls on the pieced sections, and straight lines on the solid sections.

If you have any questions or need additional information, please convo me through my Etsy shop or email bluegrassquilts@gmail.com.

HOW ITS MADE

The top layer of the quilt is sewn together, piece by piece, on my Bernina 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 of only one fabric, which is a fun print that coordinates with the top.

All three layers are sandwiched together, then artistically custom quilted, which typically takes many hours.

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.
