Having a quilt store gives us many opportunities to meet wonderful people and to share our passion with them. This last week I was privileged to talk to two of them. One beautiful young lady has been quilting for just one year. She brought in two finished quilts to share with us and her arms were filled with several more that she was working on. Meet Carrie DeBoer with two of her newest quilts!
It seems Carrie is a very generous quilter. These quilts were made for Carrie's friends and her next project (a queen size bed quilt) is going to another friend. Great job Carrie--I loved the sparkle in your eyes when you were telling us about your quilts!
The other quilter has been a customer of ours from close to the beginning of our store--almost 30 years ago. She's taken lots of classes (in fact she is taking one today) and loves fabric. She was lucky enough to win a stack of batiks--over $100's worth last week at our Shop Hop. Meet our friend Joan Parpal!
Congratulations on winning so many fat quarters, Joan--I bet she's using some of them today!
I think I'll go wander through the store and classroom and soak up some inspiration! Happy stitching!
