a unique handcrafted quilt makes a special gift . . .


My name is Elaine McCardel and I live in Michigan.  I come from a long line of sewers and makers and thoroughly enjoy maintaining that tradition.

All my quilts are designed and made by me.


I like to make modern quilts with bold graphics and straight line stitching. For more traditional quilts, I usually have a fresh, modern twist to them and mix classic and modern fabrics together.  I make my own mitered bindings that complement the overall design and add a little zing to the finished quilt.


Quilts are functional artwork. They are meant to be used, loved and enjoyed.

I use 100% cotton designer fabrics, natural cotton batting and cotton thread from Italy. 

All my quilts can be machine washed in cold water, on a gentle setting.  They can be tumbled dry on low.
