Frequently Asked Questions

HOW MANY OF YOUR QUILTS OR PRODUCTS ARE AVAILABLE?
Only 1 (one) is available. DO NOT CHANGE THE QUANTITY in the block. The quantity says 1 and allows you to change it however, DON'T do that because there is only one available. The website programmers (Weebly) have the cart portion of the website set up that way and I am unable to take the quantity block out. I can only ask and tell you not to change the quantity block because there is only one available.
WHAT TYPE OF PAYMENT DO YOU ACCEPT?
Pay Pal is our preferred method of payment. You can pay via Pay Pal with a credit card without having a Pay Pal account. Cash in person.
WHAT DON'T YOU ACCEPT?
We don't accept cashier's checks of any kind, western union, or you sending your personal representative after you've paid with credit card or Pay Pal on the internet. If you plan to pick the article up in person CASH is expected.
You can't use PayPal on the internet and then pick up the product in person. Cash is the expected payment when buying in person. We do accept checks in person if we know you personally. However, it is best to come with cash in hand.
WHY DO YOU SHIP PRIORITY?
I choose to ship priority because the packaging products are free from USPS and delivered right to my door. Second....it gets to the buyer within a reasonable amount of time and that's what is important!
DO YOU MAKE QUEEN OR KING SIZE QUILTS? DO YOU MAKE T-SHIRT QUILTS or QUILTS FROM MY BABIES CLOTHING or PHOTO QUILTS?
NO - I am RETIRED from quilt making.
I'M HAVING TROUBLE VISUALIZING THE ACTUAL SIZE OF A LAP SIZE QUILT. CAN YOU HELP ME VISUALIZE THE SIZE?
A lap size quilt is THE perfect size for curling up on the sofa with a good book. They can be used as a car quilt, a golf cart quilt, a child's drag around quilt without the cumbersomeness (is that a word?) of a full size quilt. But to help you visualize....Well...I can lay a large lap size quilt on the top of a child size twin bed and it usually covers the top not including the pillows.
I HAVE SOME FANTASTIC FABRIC THAT I WOULD LIKE FOR PILLOWCASES. CAN YOU MAKE THEM FOR ME AND WHAT KIND OF FABRIC DO I NEED?
Yes! - I will make pillowcases from your fabric. Even though I've retired from quilt making I still make pillowcases. You must ship me the fabric. For one set of pillowcases you must ship 2 yards of fabric for the main body, 1 yard for the edging fabric and .5 yard for the accent fabric. I charge $15.00 for making 1 set of two pillowcases PLUS shipping/handling.
Just about any fabric works for pillowcases. Normally 100% cotton works best, but a cotton/poly would be ok as well. I wouldn't use the cotton/poly in a quilt but for pillowcases this fabric is just fine. I don't like working with jersey fabric that stretches like a rubberband. That's the kind usually used in T-shirts.
I HAVE A QUILT TOP I MADE. CAN I SEND IT TO YOU TO QUILT?
No, I do not quilt your quilt tops. I am not that type of quilter for hire.
ARE YOUR QUILTS WASHABLE?
Yes, 100% cotton quilts are washable with care. Use gentle cycle on your machine. DO NOT use soaps such as Woolite, they tend to make deep cotton colors run. Use a gentle liquid soap for best results. If you are using powder, dissolve the soap before adding it to the washer. Use cool water, not warm or cold. If you must use the dryer, use low setting until almost dry, take out and lay flat until completely dry. Do not hang over line. JUST A NOTE: Do not Dry Clean 100% cotton quilts, it destroys the fabric.
I DON'T SEE YOUR QUILT PATTERNS FOR SALE. HOW DO I GET THEM AND HOW MUCH ARE THEY?
I don't sell quilt patterns. The only pattern I have and that's The TUBE Decorator Pillowcase Making Instructions and it's free. The one that sells patterns is Creekside Quilts by Quilt King Products from Liberty KY. At any rate it's not me.
WOULD YOU MAKE A QUILT FOR OUR CHARITY AUCTION or FUND RAISER?
I am RETIRED so I no longer make quilts to donate. I will, however, donate one of the existing quilts which are for sale on the website IF I truly believe in what the organization stands for and what it's goals are. I will consider a quilt donation to non profit organizations which involve: Animals; Senior Citizens; Schools; Educating the Homeless; Folks who have suffered a tragedy.
I will NOT donate quilts to any cancer fund raisers. The cancer industry is a massive, for profit racket that exploits human suffering for corporate profits. To protect those profits, the industry pushes a series of lies they want you to believe...lies about cancer fundraising, cancer treatments, cancer causes and much more.
If you are still on the band wagon for raising money for awareness or cure by those that display the little pink ribbon you need to educate yourself in what is really happening within those agencies. There are many websites which tell of the atrocities medical doctors and cancer societies are doing to keep you unaware. If you must support cancer awareness or cures, jump on the natureopath bandwagon which can actually cure the disease.
Copy & paste the following:
read, and absorb what it's saying then make an educated decision to stop supporting the pink ribbon.
I will NOT donate to Save the Children from foreign countries or organizations that cater to illegals in the USA.
