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.
This quilt is titled, "Night and Day," and it features a yellow floral print from my grandmother. It is pieced simply to highlight the complex hand quilting.
