WELCOME to DONNA WESTERKAMP’S Blog Handmade quilts and pdf patterns are traditional and fresh looking. I have been published on the cover of Irish Quilting Magazine 2012. Vol. 17. I also have a quilt in the American Quilters Society 2013 Engagement Calendar. My Quilt is on the Cherrywood Wicked Tour and in the Wicked book. My quilts have been appraised for excellent workmanship. I have also won several ribbons. You will be assured to get the best workmanship from my quilts. I presently work in my pet and smoke free studio in Illinois. My quilts are machine-pieced and machine quilted. I use high quality 100% cotton fabric and Quilters Dream batting. The quilt tops are stitched with a white cotton thread using a meandering design. The quilts are washable and become softer as you use them. I would recommend, a cool gentle cycle and low tumble dry. Quilts are a wonderful gift made with care. I hope you enjoy your quilts. I believe everyone should sleep under one!!
