If you are drawn to one of the quilts you see on this website, then please
call or e-mail me so we can discuss making a quilt that is right for you.
You may like a certain style of design, but want different
colors, or you may want a different size.
I don't make duplicates, so your quilt will

what your quilt might look like.
Quilts are very personal, and you probably have a
picture in your mind of the quilt you want. Take some time to daydream
about your perfect quilt. Whether you choose me or someone else to sew
your quilt, it will be helpful if you can describe what you are looking

smooth the process, and I can send you digital photos occasionally as your
quilt is being sewn.
