Quilters affect eternity; they can never tell where their influence stops

There is a purpose for every fabric and a fabric for every purpose.

Some of us are admitted fabricaholics - the rest of us are in denial.

"Take your needle, my child, and work at your pattern--it will come out a rose by and by. Life is like that...one stitch at a time, taken patiently." - Oliver Wendell Holmes

"The only place where housework comes before needlework is in the dictionary." ~Mary Kurtz

‎'Fabric is everything. Often I tell my pattern makers, "Just listen to the material. What is it going to say? Just wait. Probably the material will tell you something."' - Yohji Yamamoto designer

Rick, these are awesome. I think a sampler quilt made up of these would be a fabulous idea!
