Meet Emily…the designer of Masterpiece Quilts …who is also blessed with Down Syndrome
Needing a vocation after graduation, Emily’s mom Brenda stumbled upon an idea to help Emily have a hope and a future. Thus, Masterpiece Quilts was born! Every quilt is designed by Emily. She irons all the prairie points, helps sew each square and then each row together (with a tiny bit of help from mom),pulls all the pins, and smiles at the completion of each quilt top! Brenda finishes the quilt like a framer for the artist’s work. Every quilt has a square that is different than the rest. This celebrates the extra chromosome that Emily was so lovingly given. We challenge you to take time and find the different fabric in any quilt you examine. Have fun! And thank you for taking time to visit Masterpiece Quilts!
