THE TIME HAS COME
Over a period of 45 years of quilt making there is quite an accumulation of wall hangings and quilts. It is time to pass them on for sale. They will be presented according to my books, starting with my original Lap Quilting one, in hopes many will be identified from your quilt book library. Some have already gone to family, friends, local charities and raffle opportunities. My hope is that they can be used as teaching tools, brighten a wall or best yet, just used to stay warm in style. All quilts and wall hanging prices include handling and postage. For any consultation and confirmation please use my email: email@example.com
