Surprise!

One of the things I like to do here at Whimzie Quiltz is include with every custom quilt a gift-with-purchase – a little somethin’-somethin’ for you, the customer, to go along with your actual quilt. With a bed quilt, it’s often matching pillow shams, but with smaller quilts, it’s maybe something you wouldn’t normally expect.

Here’s the scoop on a couple of recent surprise somethings that Whimzie Quiltz customers have received…

Movie Night Right

blackwhitequiltWilliam M.’s Favorite Things quilt pattern was a mix of all of everything he loves – cats, Boy Scouts, England, music – done in a black and white palette.  That color scheme inspired his gift-with-purchase… a black and white checkerboard!  Knowing his affinity for old movies, too, I chose a vintage-looking film strip fabric for the border.  After all, I figured, what could be better than playing a few games while you wait for the DVD to start?

Hitting the Right Note

Macpurplequilts

Originally, Katherine M. wanted a quilt that featured her love of music, but it had to be purple, too. The first fabric I purchased just wasn’t purple enough, which resulted in changing the whole design and creating an ombre purple Triple Braid quilt instead. I still wanted her to have something with the music theme, though, so I used the original fabric to create a fun quilted backpack that lets her “carry a tune” 😀 wherever she goes.
