Tess Knight has been very busy as usual quilting pieced tops for our customers. But did you know she would also construct your pieced quilt top from the beginning to hand sewing on the binding?
Take a look at her latest creation for one of her customers who wanted a high school memory quilt for her daughter. If you are thinking about giving an up and coming graduate this type of gift or just need a special gift for someone, please stop by or schedule a time to meet with Tess and discuss your ideas.
