Ran across this interesting story ... I hope you’ll read about it. AND why labels are important.

I always say it is a small world and you always need to be on your best behavior as you never know who you will run into that knows someone who knows you. The intranet makes it some much more true.

Neat, neat story and she looks like she would be a fun person to know... Chris

What a wonderful story! I especially enjoyed reading it because Pulaski County is not far from where I live.

This story is so neat!
It's the kind of thing that motivates me to label quilts for an aunt who's made quilts and hand quilted them for at least 25 years. Only a few have a hastily scribbled label. She thinks her immediate family doesn't appreciate them, so she's passing them along to someone who will. If we can get labels on her quilts it may help to preserve that bit of her family history...for the day when it does matter to them.

Absolutely wonderful!

I have added labels to family quilts to identify the maker.

It's wonderful that the quilt is returning to the family.

Wow! Beautiful story. How amazing that it went home to someone who cared and to find his family members on it!! And a book to boot! Too cool!

You are a quilting angel for sure!

I think this is a wonderful story. perfect reason why you should label all the quilts you make.
I have bought many quilts at thrift stores, garage sales and flea markets and so far only one had a label.
