Welcome to Kadydid Studio!
I am so thankful for all my customers. My business has really grown over the last two years (2020-2021). It is my goal to provide the best customer service and quick turnaround to my recurring customers. Therefore, I have made the difficult decision to not accept new customers at this time. I enjoy building relationships with my customers and that is difficult to do if I keep spreading myself thinner and thinner. I also work a full-time office position so my quilting time is somewhat restricted. I feel it is the best decision to focus on my recurring customers to continue to offer great customer service and build lasting relationships. Thank you for your understanding! Should you need a referral, please reach out and I'd be happy to refer you to another qualified quilter.
Thank you for visiting the Kadydid Studio website. I am Kathy, owner, and I offer quilting services - whether that is quilting a top you have already pieced or making a quilt from scratch.
Do you have a quilt top that has been in your UFO (unfinished objects) pile forever? Let me quilt it for you so you can snuggle up with a good book and cup of coffee admiring your handiwork. Or send your finished gift of love off to a loved one or shut-in so they can enjoy its warmth and comfort.
Interested in a custom quilt to fit your style and decor? I can help you here too.
I also create memory quilts. Take that pile of concert, sport, or band t-shirts and let me create a quilt to keep the memories alive. Is that little bundle of joy growing up too fast? Let me take their first outfits and create a memory quilt to remember their early years.
I have been such a slacker in posting new photos to my website and other social media. Resizing photos and updating webites certainly is not my forte. I would rather be quilting. But I love to show off all the beautiful quilts I get to see come through my studio.

Maryanne V took on a big project with this wedding quilt. Without her daughter and future son-in-law knowing, she sent out squares of fabric to all the invited wedding guests and ask that they write/draw a message to the bride and groom. She then assembled them into this beautiful quilt. What a treasure!
These are two quilts that I recently quilted for a customer. The blue quilt was quilted with the Mandarin Lace quilt design. The colorful quilt is a Bargello quilt pattern. This was custom quilted to accent the wave design of the piecing.
I recently quilted this colorful and cheery quilt that was pieced by Anna. She isn't new to sewing, but this was her first quilt. It was made for her oldest daughter. When they picked up the quilt I found out her daughter was turning 10 the next day. How cool that it was done in time for her birthday! It turned out so cute and I love how she used some of the prints on the backing as well.
Do you enjoy volunteering, sharing your gifts and talents?
I have had the opportunity to share and use my love for quilting with a couple different groups. One of those groups is a local Quilts of Valor group - the Patriotic Piecers. The Quilts of Valor Foundation awards hand made quilts to service members and veterans that have been touched by war.
When I can, I meet with them to piece quilt tops, but I have also quilted several of their quilts on my longarm quilting machine. Here are a couple photos of the most recent quilt I completed for them. I think this has been my favorite pattern so far. I think it is the combination of the stars and stripes that I like so much.
The group is planning their next presentation of quilts for May.
What do you enjoy most about hand-crafted items? Giving them? Making them?
I know I enjoy the fun of creating something. Sometimes it is a lengthy process, selecting the pattern and the fabric can almost be more challenging than the actual task of making the item. None the less, I enjoy the process and I especially like to see the end result. And, if I am making something that will be a gift, I hope the person is just as excited to receive the gift as I am to give it. To be perfectly honest, it usually isn’t less expensive to hand-make a gift but I think it is often better quality and definitely has my heart and soul poured into it so it will be very special to the recipient.
Custom Quilting Services
Bring your quilt tops to me and I will quilt the layers using a decorative design that complements the quilt pattern. I can also add the binding to finish your quilt.
Custom Quilts and T-Shirt Quilts
Have you been saving your son or daughter’s sport t-shirts, or t-shirts from concerts or travels? Let me create a one of a kind quilt that keeps those memories alive.
