Hi, I'm Charlotte, the CEO and founder of Bluebird Gardens. Ever since starting my company in 1998, we have literally made thousands of quilts and custom gifts. From finishing a repurposed t-shirt art quilt now hanging in a Belgium museum to a gift pillow a 9-year old girl wanted to make out of her first nine-patch quilt block, it's been an honor to help people make their special gift ideas come true.

Making a gift is an art. It takes knowing the recipient, matching up a product design and periodically sprinkling a dash of impishness. My siblings and I perfected that process as we were growing up, especially the last part. The discussions, collusion, giggling and anticipation return with every project.

The projects that are the hardest to discuss are those from clothing from loved ones who are no longer with us. The conversations at first are more a tribute to the loved ones, then transition into shaping the gift. By the time the gift is finished, I feel like I know the person who wore those clothes and am so honored their family entrusted us with capturing their spirit.

If you have always wanted to make gifts but were afraid to try, you are at the right place. I will show you some of the projects we are making, share tips and tricks and look forward to hearing how your projects are coming along.

If you don't know what to get, we have some custom gift kits with honey samples ready to ship, all you need to do is add your well wishes to the free gift card.

Have your own idea but too busy? We can make them for you, just let me know how I can help!
