I am Jill, and a stay-at-home homeschooling mom to 3 amazing, active kids. Our family lives in the Madison, WI area, where my husband is a dentist.
My sewing and quilting journey started when I received a sewing machine for my 25th birthday. When I was pregnant with our oldest son I was looking for nursery items and baby bedding, and wasn’t liking what I was finding. Also, what I was finding I realized that I could make myself. So I created a few quilts, blankets, and nursery accessories for him, and realized I loved creating things with fabric, especially for those I love around me. I had a passion to create handmade gifts for friends and family around me that were filled with love and joy.
While my husband was in dental school, we decided to put my passion and our family needs together and opened an online quilt shop in 2013. Over the next 2 years I was so thankful to be able to stay at home with our children and help provide for our family. Soon the demands of the shop and the children became overwhelming, and we decided at the end of 2014 the best thing was to close the shop. Now that the children are older, we decided to allow my passion and love for quilting be shared with others and reopen my online quilt shop with JDs Custom Quilts.
I look forward to continuing this journey with you as we learn together through this beautiful/cherished art form.
