Miriam's quilt

From disaster to delight I had tried to make a quilt by sewing tee shirts of various sizes and shapes onto backing. I'd sorted and organized the pieces and tried to assemble them into a quilt by sewing them into stripes. The task proved well beyond my abilities.

Then a mutual friend introduced me to Jill who was persuaded to take my quilt-in-pieces and make something of it. The end result exceeded my expectations. We spent some incredibly creative time together to talk about what needed to be done to the pieces to make them into something to be proud of.

A few short months later, it was done. I displayed the quilt for my fellow volunteers before a recent Boston marathon. The most frequent reaction was stunned silence followed by expressions of awe. I also showed it to friends who have quilted for decades. They were so impressed that they suggested that I submit it to a formal quilting competition. I honestly don't know what I would have done without Jill to finish the quilt for me. It has become one of my most treasured possessions.

Maddy's quilt

Dear Jill,

Thank you so much for the work you did on my quilt. I loved the way you interpreted each square individually and quilted it accordingly! People looked at the finished quilt and literally cried - it was so beautiful. I could never have done it without you.

Thank you,
Maddy

Benefit Quilt

Super job on the Benefit Quilt! Great color and design. I especially liked the apparent irregular edges within the diamond shapes created by the color transitions. The "Making Of" feature on your web site was really cool too!
