Contemporary or traditional … asymmetrical or symmetrical … muted and understated or bold and vibrant. These are some of the choices you will contemplate as you work with Shirley A. Shenk to create the color palette for your own custom quilt. Prospective clients typically bring samples of their wall color, carpet or upholstery. Shirley then uses these samples to create a complementary color palette for the custom quilt. Most quilts take seven to eleven months to complete, although several of the most complex originals may take more than a year. We thank you in advance for your patience in this regard.

Intricate appliqué, small pieces and elaborate hand quilting are trademarks of Shirley's designs. Many quilts have more than 2,000 pieces and over 1,000 yards of hand quilting. All fabrics are 100% cotton and are pre-washed to avoid shrinkage or color run. Each quilt is signed and dated, thereby giving credit to the piecer and quilter, as well as Shirley, the designer. Many families who custom-order a quilt also choose to have their quilt personalized with a family name or special date commemorating a wedding, anniversary or graduation. These are the quilts that become family heirlooms, handed down from generation to generation.

We price our quilts and wall hangings based upon size, difficulty, originality, intricacy of piecing and appliqué, and amount of hand quilting.
