About Me

1011452_10203140297253730_493884000_nMy name is Elizabeth Pate Beck – a native of Atlanta, Georgia. There are not many natives since Atlanta is really a melting pot for people from all over the world!

I grew up in a very artistic family and went on to study Architecture at Clemson University in South Carolina. I have always loved the design process and enjoy a great sense of  gratification when a project is completed! My heart has found joy in creating quilted treasures for every season of life: welcoming a new baby; mourning the loss of a dear loved one; celebrating a life event like a wedding, graduation or an athletic accomplishment!

Screen Shot 2014-03-14 at 10.54.26 AMI live in a suburb of Atlanta called Tucker, Georgia. I am married to my amazing husband, Todd, who is my greatest supporter of this crazy quilting adventure! We have been married  for 27 years and we have 4 fantastic children, an incredible daughter-in-law, a future son-in-law and a very energetic golden retriever.

I began quilting over 20 years ago when my children were very young. Through the years, I made quilts for my children, new babies and friends. However, about 5 years ago I began working on some t-shirt quilts and fell in love with them. This led me to start a home based  business and it has been busy since day one!

For two years, I rented time on a Handi Quilter machine in Marietta, Georgia – which is about 45 minutes from my home. Eventually, it made sense for me to purchase my own long arm machine. My bouncing baby “Big Bertha” arrived about 2 years ago and takes up 12 feet in my basement.  She is a Handi Quilter Avante’ and I love her.

Both my custom quilts and my long arm service are growing at a rapid pace. I try to give each and every quilt a fresh look and a thoughtful approach. I enjoy the task of incorporating clients’ personalities into their quilts through unique fabric and design options.

Take a browse through my blogs and gallery which will give you some ideas on how a custom quilt can mean a lifetime of memories and joy for you or someone  you love.  I look forward to serving you.

    I’m looking for a quilter to make 3-4 quilts from old shirts. My dad passed away 6 years ago and we still have all his old shirts and would love to do something with them.

      Hi Rachel, I’m sorry I missed your message. I’m very sorry to hear about your dad. Memory quilts are a very special way to remember your loved one. I am taking orders for 2017 if you are still looking for someone. My email is epbeck413@yahoo.com. Thank you!

    I have my son’s sports t shirts that I would like to have made into quilts. Let me know if you are interested. I have enough for at least 2 queen sized quilts, possibly kings.

    My husband has two daughters from his previous marriage. We would love to have their baby clothes transformed into quilts for their bedrooms at our house. We want this to be something that is very special and unique for them so that they no that no matter the distance, they always are welcome home.
