Nancy Dobbratz Quilts
One of the hardest things about leaving Oregon and moving to Minnesota in 2008 was leaving my quilting friends behind!
Picutre #1 My friend Cathy Smith of Bend and I both had purchased this quilt kit from your store a few years ago. We finally finished it and here is Cathys.

Picture #3 In February Cathy came to visit me in Minnesota. For one week we quilted 11 of our quilt tops! Here are all our finished projects We decided to do it annually. A local quilt shop rents computerized quilting machines by the hour. We had a riot the week we spent there quilting, laughing and sharing our lives.
Picture #4 My "As Time Goes By" Quilt...we got this pattern and fabric on a shop hop in Central Washington in 2007. I finished and quilted it in 2009 for a good friend.
We always enjoyed stopping at your shop on our way to the fall Portland Quilt Expo. And of course...we still have some UFO's from our visits!
