How to create commercial-value quilts

If you would like Blue Moon Quilts to make a custom, one of a kind and completely finished quilt, we charge by the square inch – .09¢ and up on average. For example, a 72” × 90” twin sized quilt would be approximately $582.00 and up. Quilts can be custom designed to your specifications or you can choose from one of many beautiful designs we have on hand.

Your one of a kind quilt will be patiently and carefully planned.  It has been American made with hand selected quality fabrics.  Created to last, an heirloom to be treasured and passed down. Far superior to mass produced “department store” types of quilts made with inferior workmanship and materials. We look forward to creating a one of a kind quilt for you!

Your quilt may be machine washed and dried (this means the gentle cycle), with it being promptly removed from the washer.  Use cold water for the first washing and medium to low heat to dry the quilt.  Quilts with 100% cotton batting have a more “puckered” antique look.  Those with polyester batting will be more fluffy, thicker looking, and lighter weight.  You can always dry clean.  Some people cringe when they hear this.  For quilts with lush rick colors, like our Crimson and Evergreen© or Watercolor Florals, I recommend this.  They are all about color.  No one wants a quilt handed down that’s all faded out!  However, it’s a personal choice.

Both ways wear down the fibers.  Do you care if it fades?  Are you planning on using it daily?  Everyday with the family and pets piled on?  Or for show?  I have both kinds in my home.  Never store quilts in plastic and always keep out of direct sunlight.  Refold different ways to slow fabric weakening and creasing.

Please Note:  To obtain some of our lovely machine quilted designs, your quilt may be marked with special water soluble markers or chalks.  For the first wash, the quilt must be washed using cold water.
