Artist Themed Quilts


Artist Themed Heirloom  Lap Quilts

This is a special class of heirloom quilts where fabrics are selected from artists whose works in photography and other mediums like watercolor, pastels and oils are transferred to fabric.  They are generally theme based.  In the example above the upper left hand picture was taken from an artists rendition of a mare and her colt.  The quilt was created for a horse lover.

1. If you wish to have a quilt that centers around a theme of your favorite hobbie, travel interest, flowers etc email me and we will create a special quilt that is uniquely you

2.  The focal topic of the quilt is selected from artists renditions. The rendition fabric  cost is $20.  Other fabrics are selected based on your quilt theme and will color coordinate with the  artist rendition


Another example of potential design (with some variations) would be the photo displayed in the Photo Quilts section of this site.

3. You will discuss with the designer (me) ideas for predominate colors and background fabrics in further designing your quilt.

The median cost for an artist rendition lap quilts is $175. Cost of materials for these quilts average $100 without labor and include the $20 artist rendition fabric. A $50 non-refundable deposit is required when placing your order.
