The Rockville quilters are truly blessed when we think of all the pleasures a quilt can bring to so many people, the quilters are happy when people give us a quilt top to quilt, we are happy when we get it finished and the owner are happy when they pick it up. Really the happiness started when the person had enough material to make the quilt when they had it ready had it ready to be quilted; each step brings happiness so we think quilts are pieces of happiness.
