"You two never disappoint and surely continue to amaze and dazzle us all with your great work. Ambitiously arranged and faithful to your signature work ethic as these aren't enough you bundle them into an Open House replete with gracious detail, personal touches. I was hoping to see Chris again this year and found triple delight to find Lila and Molly with you as well. This comes with my thanks and a huge wish for successful surgery."

GB from Georgia
"The quilt arrived yesterday and it is magnificent! I'm thrilled beyond words with the remarkable job your quilter did-so many tiny perfect stitches! Please let her know how touched I am by her obvious care and craftsmanship. She has made an important part of my life come alive. And many, many thanks to you for bringing this quilt alive too!"

AJ from Maryland
"I just received my basket quilt on Friday, and it is absolutely spectacular! The marking that you did Dick, is beautiful, and perfect for that particular quilt. I especially loved how the border came out, with the double diagonal lines. The quilting is amazing! The stitches are very, very even--something we all look for--and they are small--another thing we covet! Finally, Georgina did a beautiful job with my binding, per usual--and I loved how she sewed the sleeve--with a bit of added creativity, given that I did not have enough fabric-- but leave it to Georgina to come up with a lovely way to think and execute outside the box! I showed off my quilt, right away, at my quilt shop, and ALL the employees were very impressed with the quilting and the cost. I honestly, cannot imagine a better place to go to than Bellwether Dry Goods, for the services you offer. Bellwether Dry Goods provides us quilters with much needed services that are very carefully executed! I am a lifetime member!"

"Thank you, I love this small treasure, the binding cut diagonally from the backing fabric sets the whole piece off beautifully. It is good to be back in your stitches. Exquisite, extensive quilting. Subtle to the average viewing eye, but will draw attention as to a magnet attracting further viewing. I appreciate all the attention to fine details and was oh so happy to have my children home from camp."

"When I got the last batch of little Civil War quilts back, the beautiful quilting made me wish that I had pieced them by hand. They really were wonderful. You marked them just as you would a large quilt! All of that work brought tears to my eyes. I have two more left to do. I will send those later. Thank you so much for taking care of my Lincoln quilt. It will go to my son who has great interest in the Civil War. I just hope that he will come to appreciate the fact that these quilts come back to us through you are really very special."

C. M. from New Mexico
"The quilt arrived last night by UPS. The box looked as though it had been underneath whatever the heaviest box was that they had in the truck but, wow and oh my, the quilt!

You and the quilter transformed an ordinary quilt into a beautiful heirloom. The top was gorgeous, but the back was equally as beautiful. Her stitches really came through on that gray backing. Every time I think the quality is as good as it can get you send me another extraordinary piece. I know you will let her know how wonderful her work is and how much I appreciate her labors.

I would be grateful if you would send me her initials and possibly her state. I like to put all of that info on the label. I have only one son and I am charging him with the responsibility to see that these Quilts go to the right place and I want all of the information that you send to go along with each quilt. I can only hope that they fall into worthy hands.

Wow and wow again! I only hoped that you would send a little list of quilts that would be suitable for Baptist Fan quilting. Never did I expect to get patterns and a sample to boot from your own collection! I can't believe I was so lucky to find your business on the internet and that I was smart enough to choose you folks to take care of my quilts. I really liked the samples and right now I am leaning toward the smaller one that forms a lattice. They are both beautiful."

R.K. from New York
