Quilts for Sale

Occasionally I decide to sell one of the quilts that I make.  It is not easy to let them go since they require so much of my time and effort, but I get a sense of accomplishment out of selling them.  I like to know that someone appreciates all my efforts.

My Quilts will be listed on My  Etsy site here   http://www.etsy.com/shop/timquilts


I will likely add more quilts in the future….so check back soon….if you see a quilt in my blog that you are interested in send me a message and I will consider a price

    Hi Tim: I’m making plans to do my first quilt this coming winter and am considering using a microfiber blanket for the batting. The pluses are that it should launder easily, dry quickly, provide warmth without the weight, no color bleeding, fairly thin. I’m not doing the quilt to sell or to pass along, just to use and launder when necessary. Am I committing a real no-no considering microfiber? Maybe I should try a smaller piece and see if I like the feel of it….your thoughts?

      Hi Meg
      I have to say I would try a small one first. I see your reasons for wanting to use it but my question is how it will quilt. if you plan to quilt by hand it may (or may not) be difficult to quilt through. What I do know is that every quilter has a different experiance and prefers a different batting. My personal favorite is warm and natural cotton….but many hand quilters think it is very difficult to quilt. Best of luck with your first quilt! I know it will be beautiful

        Tim, thanks for your quick reply, and thanks for your encouragement. I have done some crewel work plus other embroidery, so want to try my luck at quilting. The microfiber might be a little slippery, not sure. I’ll let you know how the small piece of quilting with microfiber turns out, although it might be months from now!

    Hi Tim,

    My daughter fell in love with an arch quilt ( Hawthorne NY and Pink star, I believe it’s called ). She refers to it as a person…lately, she is upset that he is getting old ( 8 yrs..) and tears that “he” aka “special” is falling apart. The blanket is disintegrating. I am trying to find one for sale to give her this Xmas. Any idea where I can find it/ him;) other than eBay? Or worth-point or ??? I welcome and appreciate any help.

    Thank you!

    Hello Tim,
    I enjoyed seeing your wonderful gardens and quilt work. It’s great that you give new life to worthy antique quilt tops. Also, your explanation regarding quilting stitch counts per inch was another helpful hint for many new to quilting or to buyers. Keep up the good work… but I wonder how do you accomplish so much !!! ?? I think that creative people are driven by their thoughts and ideas way beyond the norm.

      I guess it is something that is more of a need than anything else….I just feel like I need to always be working on something….and I can’t figure out how to enjoy just sitting.

    Hi Tim,
    I read the article in Quilters Newsletter about you and looked up your blog. Beautiful!!!! I love the quilts and the your garden. I love to sew, quilt and garden also, but I live in dry Western Oklahoma and have limited time. Your quilts are inspiring!! Thank you for sharing them!

    Hi Tim;
    Wow your quilts are wonderful. Very inspiring. Truly you have a gift. So glad that I chanced upon your site. I too find it very hard to sit still. I am always marking, cutting saving very small pieces to satisfy my nervous nellie hands. I have a very large fabric stash and most always prefer working on very small pieces. My new obsession, working on tiny thimbles for a large quilt. Similar to a postage stamp. Look forward to seeing your new creations and how diligent you are in saving our quilting heritage.

      I admire anyone who likes to work on small pieces!….I love the look of them but I loose patience and want to get them done so I usually do larger pieces
      Keep on piecing!

    Dear Tim,
    I am so happy to discover you and your work. I have been collecting quilt tops for 5 years. I completed 12 of them so far and brought them to Ghana to give to elderly and children. I never hand quilted them, just tied. Friends and family members think I am crazy – I have about 50+ still in my collection. I feel so encouraged because you are such a master at doing this and I feel that I have a role model now.

    I’m always doing something too. It just doesn’t feel right not sewing, or piecing or quilting or figuring how to do the next thing.
    I’m working on a lap quilt that I’ve used a cotton batting with a polar fleece back. I’m doing it to cover my legs when I’m machine piecing. It’s cold near the window and heat just doesn’t seem to go underneath the sewing cabinet! 😊 I’m doing several different quilting styles on it. But not a whole lot of quilting. I’ve put some freestyle hearts, flowers, etc. It’s kinda pretty 40×38, made from scraps and big stitched with ivory #10 DMC crochet thread. Not sure if I’m going to bind it or not. Should be finished quilting it later tonight. I’ll send a photo when I’m finished.
