My sewing world began in 4th grade 4 H in Portland, Oregon. I sewed a matching skirt and vest, and a red kite. Both entries won 1st place blue ribbons in the Multnomah County Fair! I earned a few dollars for each! Now, I live in the mountains of Idaho, and have been very busy over the years creating special projects out of fabric. I realize not everyone enjoys piecing fabric together or even mending, but I find great joy in the whole process of quilting; fabric selection and design, cutting and piecing blocks, ironing and pressing seams, finishing quilt tops and layering and binding them into a blanket of love and warmth or placing an Art Quilt on the wall!
I am in the business of creating customized quilts! Whether you want a brand new design, a time old pattern of half triangles, or square blocks, I will make a keepsake quilt for you or for a gift that you wish to give a loved one!
This Art Quilt is titled: "Above all else, guard your heart; for it is the wellspring of Life."
Who am I?
My name is Karen Benedict, and I love creating beauty out of fabric...it brings me joy to create a timeless treasure for you.
Because I understand not everyone has a knack for using a sewing machine or for cutting up fabric yards just to sew them back together again. Let me do the labor of love for you!
Founder & Quilter
My beloved Grandma passed on her wisdom and passion for creating quilts of love! In her lifetime, she made 188 welcome baby blankets, plus so many others. The last one she made before her passing away was for my youngest child, Isabella! I understand the value of creating such an heirloom. It's my commitment to create beauty and spread the love and warmth of a homemade quilt for you or your loved one, just as my dear Grandma did for so many!
Please contact me to design and begin creating your blanket or gift of love!
