Quilts for a brother and sister …
“I discovered Adaliza Quilts at a Food Fair in the Spring and was immediately taken by the quality of the work and beautiful designs. I was looking for someone to make memory quilts out of my children’s baby clothes and this was something Val had done in the past. After email communication, photos of previous commissions we went ahead with the project. We chatted throughout the project and I was kept up to date with the progress and I even had a couple of sneak peeks! I received the quilts a few days ago and they are spectacular: so much more than I had anticipated, with lots of personal detail and so much care taken with every piece of fabric! They are delightful and I will treasure them always.
I am not sure if anyone else would have managed to create what Val has done – I couldn’t recommend her more highly.” Caroline
Happy Memories Quilts …
‘I am leaving a belated and whopping THANK YOU for my beautiful 4 commissioned quilts. You know how much I adore them all and that I cried when you gave me every one of them. For you to finish 4 huge quilts in a very short time frame that I gave you was simply astounding. You realised my dream of memory quilts made from the weirdest bits and pieces of fabric that other quilters would not touch with a barge pole, let alone a needle!
You took on this simply mahoosive project during a particularly difficult time for yourself and never once wavered in your determination to do the most amazing justice to all of the beautiful clothing. Your finished quilts with their personalised embroideries were so gorgeous and mine took pride of place on the wall at my recent wedding. Everyone who has seen them has said how amazing they are and now friends are collecting clothing rather than selling it on.
I always wanted to be able to see the beautiful childhood memories and not have them stuffed up in the loft. What you have made for us has surpassed every vision I had and given me the chance to move on with my life and keep my memories in my quilt.
The twins had theirs for their 18th birthdays and my daughter has taken a little bit of home off to university. I could wax lyrical about you all day. I have come to know you well and consider you to be a great friend – kindred spirits perhaps. My love and thanks always.’ Catherine. (quilt tale)
