Did you know?
Every step of the quilt-making process calls for a particular woman's experience. Every one of our women focuses on either assembling or quilting. As a result, at the very least 2 ladies are included in making each quilt. The women that stitch the tops with each other specialize in assembling certain quilt patterns. Given that each quilter's stitches are different, only one lady does the quilting per quilt. This system enables each woman to end up being a specialist in her field.
