Years ago, my mother passed down a quilt made by my great-grandmother. She used bits and pieces of fabric from the now-vintage 1930’s and 1940’s dresses that she sewed, and quilted it by hand. It is faded and worn, and stained with years of use, which makes it all the more beautiful and priceless to me. This quilt keeps my heart warm with love and memory.
Today, great-grandma’s double wedding ring quilt hangs in the sewing loft at Longsmith Cottage. I can feel her looking on in approval as my sewing machine stitches along, creating quilts made with love.
I urge you to create such a legacy with a quilt for your family and loved ones. Longsmith Cottage Quilts are made to be used – to keep you warm and loved. They are made to make memories that will last for generations to come.
Please stop by often, to see what’s sewin’!
My most recent quilts and cozies are listed in the Longsmith Cottage Shop at Etsy, a secure online arts and crafts marketplace. For your convenience, click on either of the Quilts or Cozies links (in blue) below to direct you to its section in the shop!
Longsmith Cottage Quilts use historic block patterns and traditional fabric colors and designs to recreate the love and legacy of generations past. Quilts range from large throws to queen bed sizes, starting at $75.
Cottage Cozies are small and simply pieced or whole cloth quilts, lovingly created by Longsmith Cottage. Just like an old-fashioned tea cozy that covers the tea pot to keep it warm, Cottage Cozies will guard against those cold winter drafts and summertime AC. And like all Longsmith Cottage Quilts, a Cottage Cozy will become a keepsake for years to come.
Small Cozies (approx. 30″ x 40″) are a perfect size for babies and wheelchairs – from $30.
Large Cozies (approx. 40″ x 60″) are great for nap time (for children AND adults!), long road trips in the car, and impromptu picnics along the way – from $45.
Longsmith Cottage Custom Quilts are hand-crafted with the same love and skill found in all Longsmith Cottage Quilts. Whether the quilt is a special birthday or graduation gift, or is tailored for a specific room in your home, or is in memory of times and people past, a Longsmith Cottage Custom Quilt is perfect, just for you.
All quilts are made with quilter’s quality 100% cotton fabric and an 80% cotton/20% poly batting. They are pieced on a domestic sewing machine, and quilted on a long-arm quilting machine. Binding is applied by machine and finished by hand. All quilts can be machine washed and dried. Dimensions of each quilt are pre-wash; please expect approximately 2% shrinkage after washing and drying. The Longsmith Cottage studio is a smoke and pet free environment.
