About Me
It's time to sign up for the My Quilting Beehive / Colchester Mill 2024 Marvelous Mystery Quilt!!!
What is a mystery quilt? It is a quilt pattern that is revealed over time. Each month you will receive instructions to make part of your quilt. The parts will be combined over time to create a marvelous quilt!

Some happy and sad news. 
I have accepted a full time position as a Preschool Teacher. It's happy because I love teaching,
but sad because I have to cut back on the number of quilts I can help make beautiful.
I will still be doing longarm quilting, but will be taking a break from making t-shirt quilts, memory quilts, and other custom projects.

Please check before sending quilts for longarm quilting to see when I am available--
my turn around time is about 4-6 weeks right now.

Quilting By Mail ***effective January 1, 2023, there will be a $10 return shipping fee for orders under $100
I am accepting quilts by mail from my favorite quilters in Connecticut and from new customers all over the USA!

Here is what you need to do:

  • Fill out this form (click here for the form) with your contact info and some info on the quilt. 

  • Send me an email or call me to let me know your quilt is coming

  • When you call or email, I can add you to my calendar and let you know when I can have your quilt ready to send back to you

  • Mail your completed quilt top and backing fabric that is at least 4" larger on each side
             ***You may send your own batting or purchase Quilter's Dream Batting from me

  • I will return quilt orders over totaling $150 via Fed Ex.

  • Quilt orders less than $150 will ship via USPS Priority Mail. Upgrade to Fed Ex for additional $5.

When your quilt arrives, I will measure your quilt to determine the quilting fee.  I will email photos with thread color options and quilt design options
When your quilt is complete, I will send a photo and an invoice. 
I no longer collect CT sales tax.  Residents of Virginia will need to pay VA sales tax.
If you would like to pay by credit card I will send an online invoice through "Square". You can also chose to mail a check. 
Once your payment is received I will ship your quilt back to you.
