I am an artist, focused on making quilts. It would be my pleasure to make a quilt for you. The cost of an average 5x5' quilt is $2,500, but that can change depending on size and complexity. I work with vintage and new fabrics. I dye fabric myself with synthetic or natural dyes. I use a sashiko inspired hand quilting technique that employs thicker thread for a highly visible quilted line. I often use 'improvisational piecing,' and am very inspired by traditional African American quilts.
The quilt featured here is titled, "City Landscape." It is inspired by the areas of closeness and space within a city. The back abstractly depicts a waterfront, as can be seen from so many cities, like mine in Chicago. It is sewn with herringbone linen, and quilted with a pale pink thread.
