Quilts…they are LOVE you can touch…


Meet Kathy…I met her this last week at the store…image1Hi Lisa
It was such a special treat to meet you and spend time in your wonderful CA store today. I hold a special place in my heart for your quilt “Lisa’s flower garden” because it was the first quilt I ever did. In 2013 I was diagnosed with cancer and after 2major surgeries and 6 chemo therapy treatment this quilt was a part of my healing and my therapy. My sister Karen would come from Utah to Idaho once a month to be with me so my husband could go out of town for work. She and her friend Angela together made 3 sets of nine patches (1 for each of us), I cut, ironed, traced, and stitched the beautiful flower patches and when we had everything stitched and ready we spent a weekend piecing our quilts together. Our quilts are done, and my quilt is now hanging proudly in my living room and everyday it reminds me of the journey I’ve been through and still continue to go through as well as the love I have for my sister and my new love for quilting.
Thank you so much for sharing your talent with all of us who love all things quilting and hand stitching.
You have a beautiful store and I can’t wait to come back.

    What a nice saying – Love you can touch! My husband says there is nothing like sleeping under a quilt that I made. Thanks for the great quote!
