Vanita's Quilting Services

Vanita's Quilting Services Home Page

Welcome to my website.  Take a look around, I hope you find some ideas that inspire you.  Let me tell you a little bit about how "Vanita's Quilting Services" came to be.

I have a background in IT and have worked in the industry for 28 years.  It is a high pressure job with constant demands and tight dead-lines. Working full time, with three kids, I needed a creative outlet to keep my sanity!  So I tried many things before I became a quilt-a-holic.
I started my quilting journey 10 years ago with small cot quilts and then progressed to large bed quilts.  I had tried other creative outlets, pottery, folk art, painting, but I find that quilting is where my heart lies.  I love everything about it from choosing fabric to piecing and quilting. I am passionate about free motion quilting and dream up new designs constantly.  So I have decided to offer my services to other quilters like me. 

Many quilters like to piece quilts but struggle with the next steps - making the quilt sandwich with batting, basting and then quilting.  Often 'in-the-ditch quilting' is all  they can muster because they feel 'free-motion quilting' is beyond them. Let's be honest, this can get boring very quickly! So that's where I come in. I can teach you free-motion quilting using your own domestic sewing machine.  Many quilters put this in the too-hard basket, have tried and get frustrated and have given up on learning this skill.   I can teach you to relax into it, watch you and help you get into the rhythm of it, one-on-one.  This is so much better than watching a DVD! So have a go, give me a call and let's discuss it. 

If however, you've decided that this is definitely not for you, I can offer you a variety of quilting designs to complete your quilt.  I can quilt an all over edge to edge design or offer you custom quilting. Check out some of my designs, these are just a sample of what's possible.  We can discuss it and come up with something that suits your quilt.

Un-finished quilts (UFO's) - have you got a work of art in progress or sitting in the back of a cupboard? Let Vanita's Quilting Services help you finish them, so that you can display and enjoy them.

Why not make a Memory Quilt?  See my blog for some ideas on memory quilts.  I would be happy to assist you or make the quilt for you.

Thank you so much Vanita for the lovely quilting you did on my Asian inspiried quilt.  I made it for my daughter-in-law's 40th birthday and when she saw it she burst into tears.  Your expert quilting made all the difference.  You have been very easy to work with, patient and very helpful. Thank you so much.

We decided to design a quilt for my husband’s grandmother’s 90th birthday, so sent out patches to all the family and friends to decorate. After running out of time to put the quilt together myself, I asked Vanita, who was happy to put it together at short notice and even over the Christmas and New Year’s period! I was very happy with Vanita communicating with me about any ideas and about her prompt attitude. The quilt was finished by the requested date and express posted. My husband’s grandmother was “tickled pink” with the quilt and was nearly moved to tears. My mother in law tells me that she will treasure it always and the quilt is a permanent reminder of her great day and wonderful memories of her life. Many people agreed with us on how beautifully it was put together with extra stitched on flowers on the blank patches. Thank you again, Vanita for putting the quilt together so beautifully and for helping provide a perfect gift that keeps on giving!

Thank you Vanita for the wonderful quilting you did on my "Outback Adventure" quilt.  Your quilting showed up the beautiful borders on my quilt.  My father-in-law was ecstatic to receive it.

I became a grandmother for the 1st time earlier this year & decided I would like to make a quilt for the pending arrival of this much anticipated baby. Vanita was so helpful right from the very inception of the idea, from assisting in guiding me in choosing the design, to the appropriate colours & patterns on the material (not as easy as I thought it would be with so much choice to select from). She was most patient with in helping me with any problems/queries I had when following the chosen pattern. I am very grateful to the assistance provided by Vanita & am proud to have been able to complete the chosen quilt which was received at the baby shower with comments from others such as: I can’t believe you made this? Did you really make this?

Thanks so much Vanita!
