Custom order

Many, many of the blankets I make are custom orders. A special birthday, a wedding, Christmas, a new baby — all of these occasions and more are the impetus behind the custom orders I receive. (Sometimes a client will even contribute a special sweater or two of their own.)

Do you have an idea for a blanket for someone you love? I can work with you to create a one-of-a kind blanket with its very own story. You can find a list of posts of all my custom blankets by clicking on “Custom-made blankets” in the sidebar’s menu just to your right.  →

If you would like to have a conversation about a possible custom order, please use the contact form you’ll find under “Contact” in the green bar at the top of this page. I look forward to hearing from you!

  1. Thank you, it does help. Sorry I missed those pictures before. Your quilts lay so flat and even…..just beautiful! I like each of your color selections too. Is it a wool fabric you edge with? I see it looks all the same or you find a really big sweater ?
    For the baby quilt….if baby spits up on it? Do you recommend spot cleaning ?
    I think, I just want to look at them !!


    • Yes, Jeanne, I do edge with wool sweaters–I use thinner ones like merino and cashmere. Sometimes just one sweater will do the trick, sometimes I like to mix ’em up.

      For the baby blankets: In all honesty, I would initially use a blanket like this as room decor until Baby is past the spit-up stage–that just makes life easier on the new parents! My one-year-old granddaughter now sleeps with her blanket every night and it’s doing great. Spot cleaning might be okay, but you want to neither wring nor stretch the wet wool.

      All my wool has been at least lightly felted in hot water with medium agitation. That means the finished product can most likely be washed in cold water on gentle with good results. (There’s such variety in washing machines now, though, that it’s impossible to know for sure!) After washing, carefully lay out the blanket, “blocking” it as we used to do in the stone age ;) when we washed our sweaters. When almost dry, toss it in the dryer on warm to fluff it up. The wool just gets softer and softer.

      Thanks for writing!


  2. Good Morning, your blankets are amazing !! And the stories to go with them, so inventive. Just wondering what the backing is? Or if there is a picture of the backs of any of your quilts?
