Frequently Asked Questions
WHAT IS THE PROCESS FOR ORDERING A CUSTOM QUILT?
First you should EMAIL me to let me know what kind of quilt you would like. We will discuss colors, fabrics, and pattern and any additional details of the quilt. After this initial consultation I will send you an estimate based on what we have discussed. General pricing on quilts can be found HERE, but this may change based on your quilt specifications.
HOW DO I PAY FOR MY QUILT?
A 50% deposit is required at the time of order, with the balance due at the completion of the quilt.
WHAT PATCHWORK DESIGNS DO YOU OFFER?
I can offer several different designs for your custom quilt. Please click HERE to see some of my quilt patterns. I am always open to new patterns, so if you have one in mind please let me know!
WHAT KINDS OF FABRICS ARE USED IN YOUR QUILTS?
I use high quality cotton for the back and the binding of your quilt, with a soft and cozy cotton rich batting in the middle. All memory quilts include a solid color backingand binding, but patterned fabrics can be used at an additional price upgrade.
WHAT KIND OF QUILTING WILL BE DONE ON MY QUILT?
All my quilts are have an all-over meandering quilt design, which makes the quilt more durable. Custom quilting is offered, but this will affect the turnaround time for receiving your quilt and is an additional cost.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO RECEIVE MY QUILT?
My turnaround time depends on the size and complexity of the quilt but varies from 3 weeks for smaller quilts and up to 12 weeks for very large quilts. This time frame begins after I receive your items, 50% deposit, and final approval on the design. Please note that the time frame that I give you is an estimated time frame so there is always the possibility it may take longer, but I do my very best to get your quilt finished in the time frame that I have given you. This time frame will be for completing the quilt and does not include the shipping time, which usually takes an additional 3-5 days.
DO YOU OFFER ANY COORDINATING ITEMS?
I can make any coordinated items that you want including pillowcases, pillow shams, dust ruffles, crib sheets, etc.
DO YOU OFFER CUSTOM MONOGRAMMING OR APPLIQUE?
I do not offer custom monogramming or applique at this time.
DO YOU MAKE RAG QUILTS?
Yes I can make any of my quilts in a rag style.
HOW SHOULD I SEND MY ITEMS?
All items must be prewashed before they are shipped. It is recommended that you ship your items in a plastic bag, insured UPS or Priority Mail. Please include a note if there are any special items that you would like to be showcased in the quilt. I do my best to include all the items that you send, and leftover pieces of garments will be disposed of unless you give me instructions to return. Returning leftover pieces may increase the price of return shipping.
HOW MANY ITEMS DO I NEED TO SEND?
How many items depends on the size and type of quilt that you are interested in. After you contact me we can discuss what will be required for your quilt.
HOW WILL MY FINISHED QUILT BE SHIPPED BACK TO ME?
Shipping is included in the prices of all quilts. Your quilt will be carefully packaged in a plastic bag to protect it during shipping and will be shipped ground UPS or priority USPS with insurance.
