Welcome to Custom Memory Quilts, celebrating 16 years of quilting! Enjoy your visit and feel free to contact me!
When I launched this website in 2008 I was gathering pictures of the quilts I'd made over the years and realized I'd made over 75 quilts. I set a goal for myself to finish 100 quilts before I turned 40. I wasn't sure if I could make 25 quilts in just two years, but I did it! I finished my 115th quilt just before my 40th birthday in 2010 and my 300th quilt in 2015. Thank you for all of your requests and suggestions!

My Grandma June embroidered these quilt blocks by hand starting in 1928 when she was only five years old. I was thrilled when she gave them to me in 2009 and asked me to find a use for them. These are the first two of four quilts using 1930s reproduction fabrics. See my awards page for more about the yellow quilt.
