Welcome to Mellin Patch Quilts!
Thank you for taking the time to visit my website!
My name is Jody and I specialize in custom hand quilting and piecing. Do you have a beautifully pieced quilt top that deserves the extra touch of genuine hand quilting? Would you like to have a hand-quilted keepsake to give as a special gift or pass on in your family?
I am from a family with three generations of quilters, and as a young girl, I learned from my mother and grandmother the art of traditional hand quilting. I am happy to help you complete a quilt top you have started, or one passed down from a previous generation by lovingly finishing it with hand stitching and binding. I also make custom baby quilts from quilt fabric or from baby clothes and personalized t-shirt quilts. I will work closely with you to create the quilt you want, allowing you to choose quilting style, patterns, colors, etc. I work quickly, carefully, and offer very fair and affordable pricing compared to other hand quilting services.

-- "I was absolutely speechless to see what a wonderful job you did again with the dragonfly quilt. The stencil and the bright blue thread on the dragonflies were absolute genius and make the quilt something really unique and special. What I really love about working with you is that I can ask you to give the quilt a look and consider what you think would look right in terms of pattern, color and balance, and every single time I am so positively pleased with the result! You have a great eye and good taste; I wouldn't change a thing. And to top it all off, you are the most responsive, delightful person I have ever had the pleasure to work with long distance, and with me in Switzerland, that is really saying something!! As always, many thanks for turning a “project” into a “treasure.” I can’t wait to have a quilt top to send to you again sometime!" - T.I.
