Each step of the quilt-making process needs a certain lady's knowledge. Every one of our ladies specializes in either piecing or quilting. As a result, a minimum of two ladies are involved in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops with each other focus on piecing certain quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches vary, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system allows each woman to become a specialist in her field.
