My friend tagged me in this. I definitely don’t knit at all, but it’s the thought that counts 😂 by LadyColorGrade
Quilt Commissions are OPEN
If you’ve been waiting to commission me, the wait is over. Head over here to my commission page and check out the options. Make sure you look over my gallery to see if my style is what you’re interested in.
Also, make sure you check out my policies. This is very important and may clear up any question you might have.
A few examples of my work to get things flowing and spark your interest. I make things as small as 1.5x1.5 inches (pins and magnets) and as large as queen size quilts. Table runners (these double as altar mats), place mats, wallhangings, wheelchair quilts, all sorts of fun stuff!
I have several options available with patterns chosen and fabric pulled. These are ideal for those of you who know you want something, but not sure what, or may be nervous or intimidated.
How to decide on what it is you want: A vague idea is much easier to work with than being too specific. Here’s an example of how to describe what it is you want.
Nope: Saying you want a "blue and white" quilt is easier to work with than "I want it to have birds and bees in blue and white, but no solids at all, it must all be prints. I want you to use only two shades of blue and a white that really stands out. If I see any other prints than birds and bees I will be very upset because this is the only thing I want. I like warm blues, not that cold ones, but nothing too warm. Please keep your handquilting to 12 stitches per inch; I like the fancy look but don't want machine quilting because I don't like the way it feels."
Yup: Instead, a picture or idea of what you want, what you don't want, and overall very flexible. I have a repeat client who sends me a picture of color swatches and tells me the mood she wants it to have. Thus far, she has been thrilled with the results. My favorite has been "black, outer space but not too open, and some glitter. Here's the color swatch. I like these quilt patterns, but will they work with this?"
Big Yup: Full artistic freedom! Just give me the color swatches of what you want, and I’ll take it from there. Include that in the note when you pick the commission though.
I have thousands of patterns in my collection that I can use. Yes, thousands. The colors or prints you choose will help me determine what will work best. Please, trust that I will create something wonderful. I’ve yet to disappoint a client. Here’s the link to the page I have set up for reviews. Ko-Fi doesn’t yet offer a review option, so I put this together. Many of my buyers are on tumblr and may be willing to confirm the items they purchased/commissioned. I used to be on Etsy and have reviews there as well.
Keep in mind many quilts will take over 100 hours to make, resulting in them taking several weeks and even months to finish. Prices are based on the estimated time and labor these will take. It's general pricing, and kept lower than their true value in order to make these more affordable for more people. If you feel these cost too much and are unwilling to pay weekly or monthly, move on. The prices are not up for debate.
The pattern you want me to use may not work well with the fabric color/prints you choose. Please trust me to create something beautiful and unique. You may give me a few examples of what you want, but again, they may not work well with what you have in mind. If you want me to use a specific pattern, give me a general color scheme (color swatches are welcomed), even a mood you wish it to have, and I can work with that. If you want me to use a specific print or fabric collection, understand that not all prints work with all patterns.
If you're uncertain the size you want fits in any of the commission listings, please contact me regarding this.
Please look through my gallery to get a feel for what I make. My style may not fit what you're looking for, and that's perfectly acceptable. There are many quilters out there with different styles.
If you have any questions, don't be shy about asking.
I've gotten really into doll clothes lately and they're going unappreciated by my loved ones, so I thought I'd share them here! (Patterns by GreenFrogCrochet on Etsy) by AssumedPear
