Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a particular woman's competence. Each of our women focuses on either assembling or quilting. For that reason, at the very least two ladies are associated with making each quilt. The ladies who sew the tops with each other concentrate on assembling specific quilt patterns. Considering that each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each woman to come to be an expert in her work.
