Every quilt has a story

It is true.  Every quilt has a story.  Every quilt that comes into our shop has a story and I love to hear them!

Recently a customer brought in a quilt to be machine quilted that she had been working on for the last 10 years for her dad.  He is 70+ and runs in marathons.  She has been working on a quilt made from t-shirts that he has worn at various events.  She was very creative in her borders and added hand embroidery to make them look like a road.  It gives me happy chills when I see these quilts and have the privilege of helping these quilters keep memories alive.

This is, for me, what quilting is all about.

  1. Hello admin,
    How are you? Hope you are well. You blog is full of informative.Thanks for sharing.You must have a decent pair of fabric scissors. These need to be sharp and have long blades but you may have some household scissors that fit that description. That's fine. Just keep them separate and don't let anyone use them for cutting paper or anything else that will blunt them too quickly.For more tips visit-quilting equipment
