Designer quilts

Although I've been sewing since age 15, a couple years ago I began making story-telling quilts for friends near and far. Now they are available to you too!  These quilts capture your memories and delight the family. They are hand-designed patterns made primarily of cotton and flannel, but any fabrics can be used, including linen, denim, and satin. Send in your own fabrics (Tshirts or used clothing with sentimental value), if you like! 

The custom quilts come with an original "story of you” that can be “read” from top to bottom, left to right. Five original designs are also available: "Respect," Frankenstein, "A European Childhood," "Western Pacific," and Alice in Wonderland.  Three quilts made of Japanese Kimono silk came to life in spring 2020; for photos of all these gorgeous creations, see the HGBG Etsy site! 

Each of these lightweight three-ply blankets is unique, of course. In two to three weeks,

I will produce a work of textile art in vibrant color, images, and imaginative symbols.  Backs are in cotton or flannel. (To see how a quilt is made, check out the posts of Aug. 2- Aug. 13, 2019

on our "Daily Joy with Honey Girl" blog.)
