14 Years of The Quilt Ladies Book Collection

Pin It

How The Quilt Ladies Started
It seems like a dream, but it's happened ! 

14 years of My Quilt Ladies

The Quilt Ladies idea came to me about 1995. I was working at the Sioux City, Iowa, Public Library and a mother of a little girl came up to me and asked, "Do you have anything like this for me?" she was holding up a popular children's book, that is presented in a series way.  Our library had nothing. For days after she left I had it in my head. I could do it. I love writing and I love quilting. I put them together and what I have is The Quilt Ladies Book Collection.

On the Right: taken to copy editor, book designer and a printer

I sold the first 3 titles (as on the left) of The Quilt Ladies Collection at quilt show, craft fairs, any place that I thought they would sale. Added books one at a time. 

So, HERE I am.....14 years later, 12 of "The Quilt Ladies Books" and the Quilt pattern Books, "Little Quilt Ladies" 

The Best Kind of DREAM, they do come true ! 

~ Thank you all for your support and friendship ~ 

It would have never happened without you ! 

Again, Thank you ! 

If you have a DREAM 

From Dream to Reality is my process

Nothing happens overnight or even over months, but start ! 

Start dreaming, start savings, start hoping, start planning and enjoy the process.

If I can do it, you can.
