Do you really want to stand out from the crowd?
Spend some time and effort on creating a stunning masterpiece using a really special finishing treatment on your quilt.
These days to make an impact we need to take the time to piece accurately & creatively, choose amazing quilting designs that are appropriate and complimentary to the piecing and/or applique as well as not scrimp on time or design on how we finish our quilts if we want to show them in competitions. Even those quilts that are purely full of love and care for our most precious recipients deserve to be special from start to finish.
