A Celebration Quilt can be created for any reason or purpose. They can be small scale or large. Most of these are fairly small, and designed to hang on a wall. A Celebration Quilt makes an excellent gift for any occasion. Using photos makes them entirely personal. I like to add charms and other embellishments as you will see below. As you can also see, the color palates vary depending on the taste of the giver or receiver. I can work with any colors or fabric themes that you choose, and you can have as much or as little input as you desire. Photos are accepted via email.
The quilt above(and details below) was created as a bat mitzvah gift, using primarily silks, satins and velvets. Working with these fabrics was a real challenge for me, but I'm quilt pleased with the end result. Many of the fabrics were sent to me by Sonia's mother and enhanced with fabric selected by me. It measures 67" x 72" and will comfortably cover the top of a full sized bed.
The quilt above commemorates my son's time at The Island School in Eleuthera, the Bahamas. He selected the photos and donated the t-shirt. This one measures about 25" square, and is a great way to celebrate any memorable experience - a vacation, camp, a show, a party or any major event. Price is based on the size and number of photos.
This quilt was created for my niece Jenna in honor of her 21st birthday. There are photos of her at age 3, 7 and 21 - along with the proper math - 3x7=21. There are 21 cocktail glasses of various shapes and sizes, as well as 21 hearts. At a mere 20" square, a quilt like this can fit into any room.
This piece was created in honor of my dad's 80th birthday, and contains pictures of family as well as themed fabrics reflecting his history, interests and passions. There are also maps of countries and continents around the world to which my parents have traveled. I've also added language here, to get the point across!! 24"x30"
This is another 80th birthday celebration quilt, created for a group of sisters who were looking for a unique gift for their mom. They each sent me a few photos and I incorporated all of them, so each family was well represented. 20"x24"
A 60th birthday celebration quilt 25.5"x30.5"
This Quilt was created for a lover of gardening, using photos of her family in various gardens. It is embellished with floral brads and tiny garden tools in addition to the words. I can print the words of your choice, if desired, on natural cotton tape, or right on fabric as seen in the quilt above. This measures about 18"x24".
These two quilts were created as a Bar Mitzvah gifts and use photos and fabrics that reflect the young men's interests. In the top one, I also used one of the boy's old sports t-shirts with his name on the back to further personalize the piece, adjusting it just a bit to reflect the celebratory age.
