“Trash to Treasure”

One of the things I receive are a lot of unfinished quilt tops and pieces from loved ones that don’t know what to do with them after a loved one has passed. It gives me great pleasure to save these treasures. I have also found quilt tops in the trash or about to be taken to the trash and have rescued them and finish them as I can. Next year I will be having some of these treasures in our local quilt show for family members to come and see their loved ones quilts completed. Most of the time I don’t receive such treasures but I still go when I get the call because every once in a great while when sorting through the donation of fabric and sewing supplies I find great treasures that would have been loss to the trash. I give lectures and trunk shows on this subject “From Trash to Treasure”.  Contact me if your group or organization would like to see some of these treasures and hear their stories. Send your contact information to me at qualityquiltsbylaura@yahoo.com and I will send information on my truck shows and lectures.
