Autumn Fall Custom Quilt

This custom quilt was designed in part by one of our customers. Gregg asked for something totally different than we had ever done before. We emailed back and forth about 50 times before coming up with this pattern. I used Microsoft word to create a sample, then he would change it. Then I would change it to make it the right size. Then we would talk about colors and what would look good, and what should be where to make all the blocks and measurements work out right. Then Sandra found different fabic samples for him to choose from and we emailed him the pictures. He didn't know it but I was in the early stages of labor with my baby boy at the time while we were emailing back and forth, lol. It was still so much fun because it kept my mind off the contractions and Gregg was just so great to work with. We really enjoyed coming up with this new pattern for his sister's new baby. Of course, after it was made on file, Sandra got to do all the actual work of making the quilt because she is just so good at it and does such a fabulous job.

Baby Cowgirl / Cowboy Rag Quilts

These baby cowgirl and cowboy rag quilts require no hand quilting! All you need is a sewing machine, scissors, and thread.
These quilts were inspired by Sarah, a friend of ours who is into the western style. We made the pink one for her new baby girl. Sandra also made an adorable western baby boy rag quilt.

Personalized Baby Quilts

Personalizing any gift makes it more fun to give and to receive. Sandra came up with this pattern to accommodate all the interest in personalized baby quilts/blankets. I made this quilt for her new baby, Avery (obviously, that's the name on the quilt). I had various family members sign their names on the squares, all Sandra's idea. She did the same thing for my baby boy a few months earlier, as shown below.
You can also have the name embroidered onto the quilt to get a more sophisticated look. Using different colors and prints, you can use your imagination to create just about any look you want.
