Custom Hand Painted Quilt Squares

Welcome To the American Remembrances Quilt Square Gallery. All of these Hand Painted Quilt Squares are done with a special, very time consuming, technique that I have developed over years of painting. Each solid color section and calico print section takes no less than three steps and up to seven steps to complete. All these steps create the illusion that gives this work a three dimensional look of a real cloth quilt. Choose the color combinations within the gallery or send me your colors for a unique, one of a kind, addition to your decorating scheme.

Special Note: Due to a number of inquiry's and requests the option of marine plywood has been added to the 2'x2'x1/2" exterior quilt square line. If you would like your exterior quilt square made from marine plywood please add $20 to the listed prices. Wood prep, painting and finishing procedures are the same for the regular exterior plywood and the marine. See About page for complete information on material, painting, and finishing.
