A nice message from a customer that has just put up their barn quilt. July 18 2016, 0 Comments

I love getting these messages from satisfied customers. I am so happy to be able to share my passion for barn quilts and the designs with others.  Each piece tells a story- much like a quilt that covers a bed or a diary of a family’s history.
Barn Quilt on a patio
"Hi Marilyn,
I finally found a perfect spot for my (your) quilt. Since we couldn't put it on the old barn due to all the openings and the way the doors moved, I decided to put it on the back of my house above my patio!!!!!

It looks so great and I get to enjoy it close up. I love, love, love it.
I have shown it to some of my friends and emailed all of my friends and I am giving your website away, they all want one. I know of two who will probably order one....
This product is superior and to think that I was going to "paint" one on wood???!!!!!!  So happy I found your website. :) :)
THANKS so much for making these and letting me change colors."

Tennessee Rise & Shine July 28 2015, 0 Comments


One of the greatest things we get to do is learn your story and why you pick the quilt you buy. We love hearing from our customers as to why they decided on a certain quilt and the reasons behind it. Here, we feature a customer from Tennessee. Read why she chose our Rise & Shine quilt. 






"We have attached the barn quilt to the front of our house facing the eastern sky. We chose this quilt because we have chickens on our 30 acre farm in east TN..also because we should rise and let our light shine before the world. The light and love of Jesus Christ. I am sending a couple of pictures that I took this morning . God is great and greatly to be praised."



If you have a story for your quilt, please share with us! You can post to our Facebook page or email us at

Mariners Star July 06 2015, 0 Comments

Navigation is a part of life on the water. Mariners use maps, compasses, and lighthouses to guide their way home. This quilt came out of inspiration from a customer looking to hang a quilt on their cottage to help guide and welcome them back home after a long day of fishing and boating. If you're looking for something special to guide you home from the waters let us know what you have in mind! Contact us at or 616-299-9707 if you would like a nautical quilt created to welcome you back to your house or cottage!
