About Us


Our Story

In 2005, my husband and I decided to start a quilting business. I hit the pavement and gave my business cards out everywhere I went. I started quilting for a quilt shop in Independence, IA. That grew into several local quilt shops in East Central Iowa. Since then, my business has grown and my many clients have shared my name with others. I have been blessed beyond my wildest dreams! We added an Intelliquilter in 2008 and a second machine with an Intelliquilter in 2013.


Custom Orders

We do offer complete quilt construction. We have done t-shirt quilts, table toppers, wall hangings, baby quilts and everything in between. 


Machines and Materials

We operate two Nolting 24" Pro machines each equipped with Intelliquilter computerized systems. These machines are on 12' tables. I use Superior and Fil Tec threads for all my quilting. I carry a variety of Quilters Dream battings.
