Hoping you have spent many hours of inspirational
quilting. I have been busy in the studio working on beautiful quilts
for my customers and doing some charity quilting also.
AMERICAN HERO QUILTS
I had the fortunate opportunity of quilting several tops
for this non-profit organization, which makes patriotic quilts for our
injured troops returning home from war through Madigan Army Medical
Hospital and other military hospitals.
How you can help:
donate fabric, cash donations, make quilt tops or finished quilts.
Visit their website
www.americanheroquilts.com for more information.
If you send me a top with backing fabric and
batting which you have made for this organization, I will do the
longarm quilting in a simple design and ship it to American Hero
Quilts at no charge. They will have someone do the finish work and
credit the maker and quilter.
Please consider donating to this worthy
organization as your way of supporting our troops!
Since beginning my
in 2001, I have met the nicest people and have been
fortunate to see so many beautiful quilts enter my studio. All of them
are a piece of art and a joy to machine quilt into family heirlooms.
I have made quilts for
over 40 years so can appreciate the hard work that goes into making each
masterpiece. Customers can be assured of knowing their quilt will be in
the best of care while in my studio.
A special thanks goes
out to all my loyal customers for your continued business.

CARE OF YOUR QUILT
If your quilt needs to be
laundered, please DO NOT take it to a dry cleaner! If all
materials have been pre-washed, your quilt can be machine washable.
You may wash it by hand or in a gentle cycle using a fine laundry
cleaner. There are products available specifically for quilts
and vintage fabrics. Tumble in gentle cycle or line dry as flat
Wallhangings can be vacuumed gently with an
upholstery attachment. Be especially careful to protect delicate
fabrics and stitching.
Please try to keep your quilt out of direct or indirect
sunlight for any length of time to prevent fading. This can create
irreparable damage. This will prolong the life of your quilt.
If you plan to store your quilt, DO NOT place
it in a plastic bag of any kind. Allow your quilt to “breath” by
rolling it in acid free tissue paper or in a pillowcase, then storing
it in a safe place at room temperature. Lavender buds can be used to
If you plan to hang your quilt, do not do so
for longer than three months as the weight of the quilt while hanging
can cause stress to the fabric and stitches
Most importantly, take the best
care of your quilt. It is your Family Heirloom to be passed on for
future generations to enjoy!
