Welcome to Real-Quilts.com - Piecing and Quilting for You!

My business, like my life is diversified. I do both start to finish quilts, or just finish your quilt top for you. I work with you to match my quilting to the needs of your quilt. The start to finish quilts/pillows include: T-shirt, Photographs, Comfort quilts and Traditional Designs. Individual attention is given to every quilt, with free consultation. My primary business is providing a quality hand-guided machine quilting service for finishing quilt tops for those who enjoy the designing and piecing aspect of quilting. I can repair some family heirlooms, but it is a case by case decision. I do many start to finish quilts from t-shirts, photographs and patterns for those whose time and ability are limited. I have done some teaching, and mentoring others has always been a fun part of my business. You as my customers have already created beautiful quilts and I will work with you to customize a design to fit your needs.

  • Photograph Quilts and collages, with your photos (new, old or digitalized) and your input can create a lasting memory in quilts or pillows. There is no damage to the original photographs and they are returned to you.
  • Comfort quilts from love ones clothing, either living or deceased, which also could include written memories on fabric and photographs. Comfort quilts can include signatures, sayings, photographs and love. I have used all kinds of clothing, t-shirts, silk shirts, blue jeans, heavy/bulky sweaters, sweatshirts and flannel. I will suggest a pattern when I know how many quilts will be made out of how much clothing. Working with clothing is unique and challenging, but among the most rewarding of my quilting experience.
