“People who come to the quilt shop are happier when they find something they can create.”
Living with a grandmother who quilted made it likely that Dawn Habiger would grow up to like quilting — and she did. Today’s quilting hardly resembles the quilting bees of the past. Modern tools and technology take the place of scissors and hand stitching.
For Habiger, the most important thing about quilting is the bond sister (and brother) quilters form. Her adorable Chocolate Bunny quilt was assembled a block a month at Country Dumpling Quilt Shop.
“Quilting is such a wonderful expression of art,” she said. “You can create beautiful scenery and tell stories with it.”
