512. Evolution of Our Quilting Styles
Our staff is sharing stories of how their quilting style has evolved over the years. We hope that by sharing our evolution that it encourages our listeners to think back on their own quilting journey and appreciate how far you’ve come, how your style has changed, and even reflect on some favorite projects or learnings you’ve had. Very rarely in this fast-paced world that we live in, do we take time to reflect on and appreciate our talents and to be proud of how far we’ve come, so we hope it inspires you to walk down memory lane, too.
