My quilt shop is a haven for preserving cherished moments through the artistry of memory quilts. I specialize in transforming your collection of memories into keepsakes that warm your body and heart.

I deeply understand the sentimental value that clothing carries. Whether it’s a baby’s first onesie, a beloved t-shirt from a special event, or pieces of fabric from a loved one who has passed, we believe that every garment tells a unique story. Our skilled artisans take great care in turning these precious fabrics into beautiful, one-of-a-kind memory quilts that capture the essence of your most treasured moments.

Wrap Yourself in Memories

What sets me apart is my commitment to craftsmanship and attention to detail. I am passionate about my love for both quilting and the stories that garments hold. I will work closely with you to understand the significance of each piece of clothing, ensuring that every quilt truly reflects a personal journey.

My process begins with a consultation, where you can share the stories behind the fabrics you provide. I will guide you through the design process, helping you choose a pattern and layout that best complements the style and sentiment you envision. Whether you prefer a classic patchwork design or a more contemporary arrangement, I have many options to suit your taste.

Once your design is finalized, I get to work, carefully piecing together the fabric squares to create a cohesive and visually stunning quilt. The result is a beautiful tapestry of memories that not only preserves the essence of your life’s journey but also serves as a functional and comforting piece of art.

In addition to memory quilts, I offer a variety of quilting services, including custom quilts, baby quilts, and custom pillows.

About Me

Whenever I tell people about my love for quilting, I always wait for the look of confusion to come over their faces as I prepare myself for the inevitable question: “What made you want to make quilts (of all things)?”. My interest in quilting came from a book I stumbled on many years ago. I found the premise of “Hidden in Plain View: A Secret Story of Quilts and the Underground Railroad” fascinating, and after reading this book, I wanted to recreate some of the symbols that this book presented.

Many more books have been written on this subject, including some perfect children’s books. Whether fact or folklore, Underground Railroad quilts sparked my fascination with quilting and my love for quilt block patterns.

Are you looking for a heartfelt gift? My quilts make for unforgettable presents that convey love, warmth, and thoughtfulness. Whether it’s a wedding, anniversary, birthday, or any other special occasion, a handmade quilt is a gift that will be cherished for generations.
