Ep. 1: Show Notes for Our Quilting Heritage

 

We’re getting down to the nitty-gritty as we discuss our quilting heritage and our journeys to our current quilting lifestyles. We explore how we got into quilting and where this incredible journey has taken us, then we discuss and learn more about the Quilts of Valor® program, which awards quilts to any warrior who has been touched by war. We end the program by stating where each of us stands on the extremely controversial topic… to pin or not to pin?
