    Because of the overwhelming response to this video, I have decided to lower the price so even more can enjoy it!

    Over the past 30 years of quilting and 20 years teaching, not surprisingly I have made over 50 quilts that I display and explain their history and timeline. This is a sneak peek of the 27 minute full video.
