Gammill Vision 18-8 Sales Representative

I love these shop babies. Kirsten and Quintin are "nap testing" a quilt that my Mother-in-law made in the early 1940's. My daughter Amanda and I quilted it for my Sister-in-law Janet and afterwards my grandchildren did the nap testing. It took 4 generations to complete this top. When is that napping going to start?

But a new shop baby is on the way to keep his big brother company. We have signed up to be a Gammill Vision 18-8 Sales Representative in our shop, Aurora Quilts, 9100 Church Street, Manassas, Virginia 20110.

Hampton Quilt Show - March 25, 2012

This is me at the Hampton Quilt Show this past weekend. I was enjoying looking at all the wonderful quilts.

The quilt below was a group effort to surprise my friend Ginny R. with a quilt for her birthday. I made five of the blocks and did the quilting on our Gammill Longarm Quiltng machine. Of course we used the every popular Lime Green thread!

Happy Birthday Ginny!

The colors are very rich with a wonderful border fabric to highlight the medalion center. We have room for one or two more particpants in the Block of the Month Club. Call us at 703.330.9111.
