The fabrics are all 100% cotton with 100% cotton batting and can be machine washed and even tumble dried on a gentle cycle.
Dianne has been making quilts for over 14 years. Sewing is one of her loves and passions and it brings her great joy to create a personalised gift that is both practical and beautiful.

The Design Process For Custom Handmade Quilts
The first question is who is the quilt for? And secondly, how will it be used?
Quilts make ideal gifts for new babies, children moving into a ‘big bed’ from their cot, grandparents or even newly married couples. They can be used for cot blankets, are ideal floor rugs for ‘tummy time’, are handy to keep in the car for a picnic and make great throws for those colder evenings.
Who the quilt is for will guide the choice of fabric in terms of the colour and design. The range of fabrics available is extensive and coordinating fabrics can create bright, colourful quilts or more subdued tones can be used for something more subtle.
How the quilt will be used will affect the size of the finished quilt. From an everday placemat size to large custom handmade quilts for beds and everything in between.

Care Instructions For Your Handmade Quilts
Being 100% cotton fabrics and batting, our quilts are easy to care for and maintain. Your custom handmade quilt can be either machine washed or handwashed with an everyday laundry powder.
All our quilts can either be line dried, preferably in the shade or tumble dried on a low setting, or a combination of both. Tumble drying your quilt at a low temperature for 10 minutes can reduce the drying time on the line and helps to soften the fibers.
As your quilt is washed over time the fabrics will soften making your quite more and more cosy. Ironing is not recommended as it can flatten the backing changing the appearance of your quilt. Following these instructions will allow you to enjoy your custom handmade quilt for many years to come.
