Thanks for stopping by. I'm Laura and this is my sister Nancy. We live in the Sierra Nevada mountain region of rural Northern California. We each have wonderful families and lots of grand children. While our quilting heritage spans multiple generations, we only became intently involved during the past few years. Several unfinished quilts were passed from our grandmother to our mother and now to us.
We are committed to finishing them but often our quilting journey finds us side tracked trying a new project, building our stashes, visiting a quilt show, making a quilt for a local charity event, learning from others in our community or reading the latest quilt magazines and books. Not to worry though, we will get those UFO's done!
This is an unsettled time in our world. Creating a sense of heritage and connection through quilting provides both purpose and direction. It is amazing how making quilts, teaching others to make quilts, and most importantly sharing those quilts with family, friends, and community, nurtures and draws families and community together. So we quilt!
My sister is an amazing teacher and artist with an uncanny eye for color and design. She struggles daily with the debilitation of MS but she keeps on going and inspires youth and adults to learn to quilt. It is rewarding to see the smiles on the faces of children she has taught when they finish their projects.
Thanks again for stopping by Country Pines Quilt Shop, home of top quality fabric and kits. Where we help others create community and heritage one stitch at a time! Stay a while, browse and let us know if we can be of service.
