Commission Quilts

Quilt Commission (Designed based on customer's request)


  • Details
    Before purchasing this item, a custom quilt, please contact me directly through email or by phone.

    Designing and executing custom commissioned quilts is a great joy for me. I take each one personally and strive to meet the expectations of the client.

    The Process:

    1. Customer contacts me to schedule a design meeting (by phone or in person). During this time we will discuss and collaborate on the following to ensure I fully understand your expectations and provide you with designs that are on target:
    - Intent and purpose (Will someone be sleeping under it? Will it hang on the wall? How will it hang?)
    - Recipient
    - Color likes and dislikes
    - Image/shape likes and dislikes
    - Size and special requirements
    - Timeline

    2. I will draw and share up to 3 design suggestions. Once a design is selected, client purchases this item from my shop by selecting the number of $25 increments needed to equal the total cost. Total cost includes design time, materials, estimated hours and shipping with insurance. Purchasing this item for the full price of the quilt you are commissioning is a contract that I will provide the finished quilt as designed by me and selected by you, in the agreed upon time frame, for the agreed upon price paid.

    3. Once completed, I will mail the quilt insured through Fedex or UPS. This cost is included in the original quote, so no additional fees are collected from the client.

    All purchases are final on custom quilts.

    1. How long for design time?
    I do work full time, but my schedule is quite flexible. I will work to have design suggestions to you in 1-3 weeks. Designing is a create process and, for me, has more to do with inspiration than time.

    2. How long does it take you to make a quilt?
    I have made small quilts that took 10 hours start to finish and others, like the Origami Frog Quilt pictured here, that took more than 100 hours. I only take commissions I can promise to execute in the time frame you desire. It is helpful to call me earlier rather than later though.

    3. What about colors?
    Colors may look very different on monitors. If you have a fear about that, I can mail you fabric samples prior to purchasing. This will prolong your process, but if you do not have a strict deadline. I recommend this.

    4. Why are quilts so expensive?
    I use only the highest quality fabric, batting and thread. This ensures you a product with materials that will last. The quilts pictured here are priced between $175 and $1200. Prices are mostly affected by size, intensity of piecing and density of quilting.

    5. If I like a quilt on your site will you make another? Yep! And that is a huge compliment for me! You can even change the colors, fabric, size and design if you'd like.
