  • check the local quilting clubs in town and with the local chruches to see if anyone can help you.

  • If you have a Joann's Fabrics in your area, they might be able to give you the name of someone that might be able to do it.

  • depending where your loacated and how soon you would like it complete Id be open to do it for you of course I do need to charge because it is time consuming and I work from home but im very reasonable we can talk via email & as for materials you could mail me depending where ur located maybe drop of pick up, and other materials involved I could get you a item list of what I need and send you receipts... I guess I could set it up for you on ebay as a sale so were both covered?

  • Most Quilt shops have samples on display of work from local quilters. They can also advise you as to a reasonable fee for the work you're planning to have done, and recommend quilters in your area whose work they are familiar with. GL with your project, it sounds like a wonderful idea. :-)

  • Just to add, be prepared for it to cost a lot more than you expect. Quilting is extremely time consuming, so it costs quite a bit to get a quilt made custom for you.
