About My Services
Art experience and design knowledge are combined with sewing and seamstress skills to create truly unique items that are usually designed and crafted for a special recipient. Nearly every piece is one-of-a-kind, and will be worthy of future heirloom status.
All longarm quilting is done free-motion, capturing the artist's "hand," and incorporating unique motifs and stitching patterns to echo, or accentuate the pattern in the fabric, or complement the overall theme or design of the quilt. While computer generated designs are more consistent, they produce a look and feel that is more mechanical and less artistic. Computers are not used.
Every quilt that is intended as a gift gets the recipient's initials hidden in the stitching somewhere in the quilt. This is a free, but optional, service that customers and recipients love. My custom is not to divulge the location of the initials. Some people find them within moments, some take months.
Customers have many options to choose from. These include batting type and weight, thread type and color, backing color, and binding options. Or customers can save by sending in their own batting, backing, and doing their own binding.
Communication with customers is a key element to collaboration when making an item that a family will likely treasure for generations. Photos can be taken and shared during the construction process, allowing time to stop and get direction from the customer before proceeding. However, even after seeing pictures, most customers are still surprised at how lovely the piece turns out after being quilted by free-motion, as it lends an "artistic hand" quality to the overall feel that is not obtainable through computerized machine quilting.
Other Services include designing of quilt tops, all aspects of quilt construction, consultation on quilt design, consultation on quilt restoration, quilt restoration of well preserved quilts and quilt tops, custom baby quilts, tee-shirt quilts for retirements, achievements, graduations or birthdays (even boys love them!).
Quilt As Desired is based on the belief that customers' needs are of the utmost importance. I am committed to meeting those needs and exceeding expectations. As a result, a high percentage of my business is from repeat customers and referrals.
