My goal is to gather from you the feeling you'd like the quilt
to envoke and some concrete likes and or dislikes you have toward
certain colors or shapes. The cost of the quilt will depend
on the complexity and the size of the finished piece.
Currently I'm experimenting only with African fabrics. It
is my small contribution to the people there. I'm committed
to showcasing the various color range, the versatility of the
African prints and the ability to incorporate these fabrics into
There are many ways to make a quilt but for the most part
we can group them into three categories.
Comforter style - two pieces of fabric the size of the finished
quilt with the fluffy batting in between.
Appliqué - start with a piece of fabric the size
of the finished quilt and use it as a background and sew
cut fabric shapes on top of it.
Pieced (American) - sewing pieces of fabric together to form
blocks or squares; then sewing all of the squares together to
create a sheet of fabric the size of the finished item.
The first column of prices on the table below are for Comforter
Style quilts that are intermittently "tacked" or tied down to hold
the front and back pieces of fabric and batting
The remaining prices on the table below are for pieced
Medallion Style means the center of the quilt is pieced or made
of one block and the fabric surrounding it is made of large bands
of fabric to complete the size of the item. The medallion
itself will be approximately 30% of the finished items size.
As you review the table you'll realize the smaller the block or
blocks to create the quilt the more expensive the quilt becomes.
Separating these defining features will help us create the quilt
you want at the price you want.
