"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." Jer 29:11 (NIV)

Commissioned Sewing

My commissioned sewing is designed to fit what the client wants the final quilt to look like.    This involves showing the client with potential designs and then working with them to refine the look, sometimes through out the creation process in addition to the design process.  The result are quilts that are one of a kind.

This page will show pictures of the latest commissioned quilts and other objects that are examples of what I have made in the past or am currently making.

If you have any questions or would like for me to make a quilt for you, please email me at mlmcspadden (at) juno (dot) com.

Passport Wallets with removeable strap

This wallet was made for a friend in Arizona. 

Back of the wallet showing where/how the detachable strap works.   Strap is adjustable in length.
Front of wallet with cell phone pocket and button w/elastic loop for closing.
Inside of wallet with credit card holder pulled out.   RFID fabric is in front cover and the credit card case.  Credit card case goes into the upper right pocket.

These can be ordered in assorted colors and prints.  Coming up are ones with Mickey Mouse, wolves, owls, and ladybugs.  In the planning are ones featuring assorted travel prints including Paris France themes,  Hot air balloons, tropical swimmers, cats on a beach, and others.

Twin-sized quilt made with t-shirts, ties, and cotton fabrics.

Blocks were pieced with sections from ties that had been worn in the past by the recipient.   Block with the white shirt and tie was made to look like what was worn when the recipient was on his mission.  Name tag is a replica of the badge that he wore during that time.   Tie is the one that he wore on his wedding day.

All cotton fabrics were used with cotton batting.   Ties were a mixture of polyester, cotton and silk.

I remember you talking about the missionary quilt, but I don't recall seeing the end piece. I never realized you meant one of MY missionaries. LOL This is good. I'll have to show it to some missionary moms here. Maybe someone else will want one. Great setting!
