Home Decor Commissions

This is a selection of some of the Home Decor pieces textile artist Jean M. Judd has been commissioned to design over the last ten to fifteen years. This page features a very eclectic group of items: from children's height charts to bargello roman shades to custom 36 inch pillows including drag racing cars. If interested in having something similar designed for youself or as a gift for others, please go to the Commission Forms menu and fill out a commission form for the particular piece you are interested in having done. I would be very happy to work with you on your own unique piece and can always design sometime totally unique just for you. The sky is the limit!

Height Chart #1 (2008), Jean M. Judd, Textile Artist & AuthorThis is one of two commissioned pieces. My client requested a height chart for marking the growth of their daughter who is two years old. The chart is 10"x85" and is made of 100% cotton fabrics.

I have incorporated into the chart, a frame to hold a wallet size photograph of the little girl each year through her 18th birthday.

The piece is hand quilted and hand bound. Quilted inside each frame is the corresponding year for her age as she grows. The first frame on the bottom has a zero in it and is for her first picture taken the day she was born.

Her name is handquilted down the side and a frog, ladybug, sun, tree, building blocks with her initials and flowers are hand quilted on the chart.

Each year on her birthday she will be measured and the date and a mark will be made on the chart side with a permanent fabric marker.

Bargello Roman Shades (1999), Jean M. JuddThis one-of-a-kind Roman Shade was commissioned for a house remodel project. It is made with 12 different blue fabrics and six browns.

The "quilt" is not hand quilted as my other pieces are, but machine stitched only where the staves are for raising and lowering the shade. The shade has no batting, just a piece of unbleached muslin on the back side. It is signed and dated by the artist. The shade is 86 3/4" x 95" and is in two seperate panels so that only one can be open at a time or both.
