The 5th Annual Airing Of The Quilts will be held on Saturday, September 17, 2022. We'll have lots and lots of quilts on display outdoors along the sidewalks from our shop to the village park. There will be quilts awarded by the Dairyland Quilts of Valor Chapter and the Gratitude Gals Orfordville Community Quilt Makers. The Patio next to our shop will feature more quilts and we'll have a quilt history presentation, vendors, a StoryWalk for families, and more!
We offer longarm quilting services - both all over designs and custom quilting. We also quilt T Shirt Quilts. Prices vary as to the size of your quilt, the density of the design, and customization. Bring your quilt top in, we'll look it over and visit with you about it, then come up with a perfect quilt design to make your work of art an amazing finished quilt.
You can choose from many fabrics that blend perfectly with fabrics that you may already have to complete your project! Prints, Solids, Batiks, Panels, Fat Quarters, and Quilt Kits. There are seasonal collections by well known designers. New fabrics are arriving each month - so be sure to check in often!
Quilters either love binding a quilt, or don't love binding a quilt. If you don't love it, we can do it for you! We'll add a machine sewn or hand sewn binding, which ever you prefer.
The Pattern series, A-OK 5 Yard Quilts use 5 - 1 yard cuts of fabric. We've done the work for you, and have 5 co-ordinating fabrics put together. For $58.00, a pattern is included with 5 yards of fabric, and you get to choose it!
We've made all of the quilts in the series, and they are displayed throughout our shop. Each pattern is written simply and easy to follow, and sews up quickly. A generous throw size when finished, they are perfect for gifts!
Tops should be pressed and extra threads removed from the front and the back. We have many thread colors to use, and can help you choose the right color to showcase your piece work. There are so many patterns that are available to us, and we can talk with you to choose the perfect one if you like. If we don't have one that you're thinking of, we can most likely get it!
Backing fabrics should be at least 5 inches larger on all sides of the top to allow us to load the quilt sandwich on our machine. The back should have all seams pressed flat. If you don't yet have a backing, we can make one for you using a co-ordinating fabric that we sell in our shop.
You are most welcome to bring a batting of your choice for your quilt. We have Pellon 80% cotton / 20% poly batting for purchase also. We also are able to get specialty battings for you - wool, bamboo, silk, 100% poly, and others. Sometimes, a quilt warrants a specialty batting to get the look that is perfect for your finished quilt.
A local chapter, this growing group makes quilts for veterans in the Rock County Community. Quilts are made and awarded in a moving ceremony to veterans by nomination. Red, White, Blue, or Patriotic fabrics and financial gifts can be donated and are collected in our quilt shop. Always accepting new members, more information is available by contacting co-ordinator Sharon Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org. See qovf.org for more information on the national organization.
There are 20 Quilt Shops within an hour's drive from Orfordville. Each one of the shops has something different and is a destination in itself. Make up your own shop hop get around to see them!
