Each step of the quilt-making process requires a specific woman's competence. Each of our women concentrates on either assembling or quilting. As a result, a minimum of 2 ladies are included in making each quilt. The women who stitch the tops together focus on piecing particular quilt patterns. Since each quilter's stitches differ, just one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system permits each woman to become a specialist in her work.
