All quilts have a story! The design, the quilting, the fabric and best of all…… The Quilter (yes, you!) are all a part of the uniqueness of every quilt.

Do you have a quilt that you love that was given to you by someone special? Your well loved quilt is also more than welcome at the Show and Tell.
