As far back as I can remember I wanted to sew. Once I learned to successfully thread a needle, I would raid my mother’s rag bag and button box to practice, practice, practice. I was soon spending hours making fashions for my Barbie doll. Rather than hand-sew everything, I always wanted a toy sewing machine – but never got one. I have since made up for that, I have a collection of eleven now!
One summer when my children were small we took a family trip to Amish country in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. I fell in love with their quilts! The beauty and workmanship in them made me want to learn the craft. From then on I took several classes, read many books and began to make quilts of my own as well as for family and friends. Then, in 1996 I decided to open MadeMarion and make quilts for sale.
I make mainly baby and lap sized quilts. Making a special quilt for a special baby is very gratifying to me. I also enjoy the challenge of a custom order; finding and selecting just the right fabrics. When I am not shopping for new fabrics, patterns and books I like to learn and apply new techniques.
Browse through my selection to find that perfect baby or lap quilt. If you don’t find what you are looking for, please keep in mind that I take custom orders (minimum $30 surcharge). Just contact me and we can discuss how to proceed.
