There is something very special about being wrapped in handmade quilts that has been infused with items from your past and from those you love.

Custom memory quilts and hand embroidery work are some of the best ways to preserve one’s memories. Whether you’re thinking of a Memory Quilt or a Memory Pillow, these personalized pieces of art actually tell their own story. Working with a large variety of fabrics from clothing, patches, hats and other personal fabric items, I specialize in creating one-of-a-kind pieces of art and making them special for you. Detailed and personalized attention is given to each individual piece, ensuring that every final product meets your expectations. Thus, giving every quilted item it’s own character and feel, designed especially for you with your taste in mind.

T-shirt Quilts are yet another wonderful form of Memory Quilts. Whether the t-shirts come from childhood, school years, concerts or places and events a person has been to, this is a great way to use and display your collection of t-shirts. While at the same time keeping your heart, soul and body warm with comforting and loving memories.

Dear Geneva,

Just a note to tell you how much I LOVE the quilt that you and my husband worked on together for me. I have a long history of loving quilts. They have always brought me comfort, and this one feels like a long-lost hug. All my best, Robyn J. Charlottesville, VA Geneva, I just wanted to thank you for the beautiful job you did in creating our quilt. Your beautiful design and extraordinary quilting work exceeded my expectations. Somehow you knew just how to arrange all the pieces in a way to put them in to best advantage. Not only did you create a work of art that is beautiful to look at but it also feels wonderful and so very well made. You are truly an artist and a craftsman of the highest capability. Thank you for your care in creating an heirloom for our family that we will cherish for generations to come. All my best!

Dear Geneva, Just a note to tell you how much I LOVE the quilt that you and my husband worked on together for me. I have a long history of loving quilts. They have always brought me comfort, and this one feels like a long-lost hug. All my best!.

Robyn J.Charlottesville, VA

The quilt arrived yesterday. I cried at it’s beauty and all the memories it represented. When we decided to have a quilt made, we could have used a local quilter. We then did a national search on who is the best. Your name came up. From the first email to the discussion on style, technique, cost, timeline, your professionalism shown through clearly. We are so glad we contracted with you!

This woman can take all your memories and create an amazing product. I had a quilt made for my dtr with a Boy Scout theme. Unfortunately, during this process my husband passed. She then was able to make three wonderful pillows. They are the perfect thing to hug on a bad day. I have never worked with someone so responsible, thoughtful and talented!

The quilts and memory pillows arrived today! They are safe and sound – no issues whatsoever. And they are spectacular!!! I was so emotional – took me awhile to catch my breath – they are so beautiful – so special – so well done – the colors, patterns, edging, backing, embroidery and quilting – all of it – just perfect. I am thrilled! I plan to present them to the kids this weekend, and I am sure they will love them. Thanks again for all your efforts – what a blessing. I recommend you unconditionally!


Thank you so much for all your hard work on the quilt and the pillows. I have had a chance to show them to many people and they think they are beautiful too!!! My daughter and granddaughter were very surprised and pleased with their pillows too. Thank you again for all your beautiful work!! Everything was much more beautiful than I even imagined!!!! Thank you for the beautiful keepsakes!!!!!!


Thank you so very much for my beautiful quilt. It is truly a peace of art I’ll cherish forever. Every person who has seen my quilt is amazed by the detail and neatness of your work, and even more amazed at the speed you completed it…

Keeping Memories Of Those We Hold Dear

Being wrapped in a warm quilt created from your loved one’s personal items can at times feel like being held in their arms. By incorporating pockets, labels, name badges and other personalized fabric items, loving memories tend to become stronger and more comforting over time. Through my own personal experience, this can be immensely helpful in the healing process associated with grief. Here at Timeless Thread Design one of the main goals has always been to be able to help you through this healing process.
