20130915-075308.jpgJean is a long time client of ours who has thrilled us time after time with her intricately designed pictorial quilts. She is an aficionado of McKenna Ryan’s work, among others. We have quilted many 3 dimensional pieces, including an elephant with big floppy ears, fishing scenes and historical items of note about Texas and California.
