I love quilted products, the quilters are real artists, what they can do with fabric is unbelievable. I follow a few quitlers blogs and I have seen some really really stunning stuff .
Ha! A friend of mine is a quilter, too. An inspirational vocation!
My mom and a close friend of mine are very talented quilters. I just enjoy their final product.
I love love quilting! (I can’t do it though. Just an observer)

How wonderful. Quilting is a beautiful craft and how symbolic and meaningful a group quilting project is.
