Our Story

 Why we love what we do

Badlands Quilting began in a private home on the Pine Ridge Reservation of SD. What began with the creation of a few star quilts for one person soon turned into a passion for designing, creating, and quilting to meet the demand for star quilts within the local community.

Today, that passion is stronger than ever and we operate from a storefront on Main Street in Martin, SD. We proudly create high-quality star quilts for people across the United States, Canada, and Europe.

Every star quilt is a hand-crafted artistic creation from the heart, hands, and mind of each person involved. We take pride in the fact that an artist has conceptualized a color combination and cut out the quilt kit to bring that concept to life. Another artist has sewn the quilt together and yet another artist has chosen and quilted a design for the quilt, making it nearly impossible for quilts to be identical (unless you order them to be identical)!

We pride ourselves in providing an on-demand, steady source of hand-crafted star quilts for ceremonies, giveaways, memorials, graduations, funerals, powwows, and many other functions.

We strive to pay all of our artisans a fair wage while maintaining an affordable price on our product for you, the customer. We look forward to many more years of being a trusted source to the community for these beautiful quilts.
