Shanti, Tustin CA

“We contacted Sandi to have a quilt made for our beloved Head of School who was leaving after 23 years of service, and we are very happy with the way the quilt turned out. It exceeded our expectations! The resolution of the pictures on each square was incredible! The colors of the fabric were exactly what we wanted and there was a wide variety to choose from. The website was very easy to navigate. It was helpful to be able to see the progress being made at each stage of production on a personal webpage. It was wonderful working with Sandi! She made the whole process seem easy. Thank you Sandi for making our wishes come true in creating the most beautiful quilt for a very special person we were bidding farewell to”.

Thank you Sandi!

Shanti.

Hi Sandi!
Well, our 50-year Class Reunion was a huge success!!  Here are some photos I thought you’d like to see.  Thank you, again, for your very important part of our celebration!  Many, many people expressed how beautiful and how well made the quilt is!  The committee has thanked me so many times for finding you to create this gorgeous gift.  God bless you, and I hope to be in touch with you again with another quilt order.  Enjoy the photos below.  xo Barb , MI

When the time came for the presentation of that beautiful memory quilt, our chairperson had a difficult time getting the words out and not crying. As you can see, Sue was already overwhelmed.  We also noticed that her husband had tears in his eyes, too.  br02

Here is when I had to “wrap it up” and transfer ownership.

Hi Sandi,Can’t thank you enough for all your hard work.  It’s you who made this whole thing so easy.  My sister Beth, who is the perfectionist of the family was a little wary of doing something like this through the internet, but now she had this to say in response to your e-mail that I forwarded to both my sisters….I love it.  Do you?  I think the company is very professional with the updates, pictures.  I am impressed.

My answer to that is a resounding YES, I do love it! I am telling, showing, and recommending you to all my friends and co-workers.  You’ve made the whole process so easy and painless. Thanks again!

Hi Sandi,

I just wanted to send you an email to let you know how much our parents loved the quilts!

Our wedding day was on October 23rd (we just got back from the honeymoon yesterday). John and I gave our parents their quilts the day before the wedding, and both sets of parents were very surprised and delighted! Both of our moms were brought to tears, and our dads were just in awe. It was a perfect gift that they will cherish forever! On the day of the wedding, my mom had her quilt displayed across the bed and brought all my aunts into the bedroom to see it. Both quilts turned out just beautifully, and you were a real pleasure to work with. I am sure we will be coming back again as babies are born and new cherished occasions arise in the future. 🙂  I showed one of my coworkers a photo of the quilts, and she also loved it. She said she would be placing an order with you as well. I just can’t say enough about the quilts! It was all just perfect…absolutely perfect!!

Many thanks for everything,

Dana and John , Lake in the Hills, IL

I wanted to take a moment and tell you that I LOVE the final outcome of my sons graduation quilt. It is simple PERFECT. I love the way the embroidery for the poem in the center looks…love the colors of the fabric..love how vibrant the pictures look…I will certainly refer you to others and will be using your services for more quilts in the future.  I can hardly wait to give it to him…I know he will treasure it for a lifetime. Thank you for always getting back to me so quickly with answers along the way to my millions of questions. I think the way you provide our own page is amazing…it makes it feel like a neighbor down the street is doing your quilt and you can see updates along the way…even though your thousands of miles away…Kristi, Menifee,Ca

Sandi,

I received the quilt today.  When I looked at the quilt I was just stunned!  The pictures actually look better on the quilt then they do in person.  I’m so thrilled with the end result!!!  I just giggled when I opened it.  You should’ve seen me. LOL! Thanks so much and it was a tremendous pleasure working with you.  You made the whole process so pleasant!  I’ll definitely recommend your work to friends.  You should advertise on Facebook (if you haven’t already).  Thanks a million!!!

Sherry, Rosewell, GA

Sandi,

WOW!!  You are awesome.  I simply love the quilt.  It came yesterday while I was at work.  I went to visit my mother in the hospital and when I called home to see if I received a box.  I was told. “Yes, but it is wet because of the rain.”   I was pleasantly surprised and extremely thankful that you had wrapped it in a plastic bag.   It saved the quilt.   I was just in awe when spread it over the bed and just stared at your handwork.    Sherry, Rosewell, GA

Dear Sandi,

The quilt arrived on Friday afternoon!

I was so blown away when I saw it. It is absolutely gorgeous. The pictures turned out so vivid and pretty and  the fabric is so beautiful! I loved the way the hearts are framing the sides of the embroidery. It was so much more than I could have ever anticipated. I knew it was going to be something special but it exceeded all my hopes! When my mom opened it, she was so overwhelmed and surprised! She LOVED the colors and thought the embroidery was so beautiful.

She shed lots of happy and grateful tears.  We couldn’t have done something this special and unique without you! I so appreciated your hard work and the thought, detail and quality of your handiwork. I really enjoyed being a part of the entire process. Thank you for all of your patience as I sent you LOTS of emails. I so appreciated that you always returned my calls/emails with promptness and always addressed my questions and concerns. Most importantly, thank you for putting so much care into our quilt. I realize how much time and energy you put into your work and it is such an honor to have a quilt made by you!   Finally, I cannot tell you how exciting it was that it was completed for her birthday. I have a feeling  you put in extra effort to get it done by the date we wished. I know it must have been difficult to finish and ship it out on time. Thank you for your extra energy, as it was so special to have it arrive on her birthday weekend.  Thank you for this wonderful gift, Sandi! It something that we can treasure forever.

Dear Sandi,  The quilt is absolutely beautiful!  I picked the package up at the post office on Thursday and took it up to Jessica Friday morning.  I didn’t open the box as I wanted her to be the one to open it.  As soon as I drove up, she came out from the backyard and asked “did you bring it”?   I handed the box over and she opened it, just like a child at Christmas.  She pulled out the quilt and opened it up.  Sandi, the smile on her face as she looked at the quilt and the pictures was priceless and brought tears to my eyes.  I cannot express my gratitude to you for what you have done.  She slept with it the past 2 nights, holding it but not putting it over her as she is afraid to ruin it.  It is bringing her so much joy.

God bless you Sandi for the joy you have brought to Jessica.  Here is a picture of Jessica with the quilt.  Thank you again!

Hi Sandi,The quilt has arrived and it is absolutely beautiful! Thank you so much. It is a lovely record of Tamsin’s 21 years and is so very well made. She will love it. We have been waiting anxiously for its arrival (it has been an age in customs – but it was well worth the wait.)I had been uncertain initially whether to order from the US, but you quickly alleviated any fears. Your careful handling of the order, your quick responses to queries and the personalised website have together provided us with an easy and highly professional service, which I would have no hesitation in recommending to customers anywhere. Our very best wishes and thanks again, Lindsey and family, Newport, UK

Jon, Fayetteville, TN

Sandi, I want to start by saying THANK YOU so much for working with me! You guys are a real class act. I could not be happier with the entire process! From start to finish you guys have been extremely informative and kept me aware of your every move. I really appreciate you time and effort! Also, thank you again for getting this quilt done so fast. You guys make it extremely easy for someone like myself who is not very artistic. The quilt looks AMAZING! You really went above and beyond what I was expecting and paid for.

Nancy, Norman, OK

 

I received the quilt and of course, I couldn’t wait to give it to my mother.

 

My mother had a stroke 4 years ago and it’s difficult at times for her to say what she means.  But as soon as she saw it, she said over and over again how beautiful it is and I know when she looked at each of the pictures she was actually reliving that moment again!  She cried, I cried!
I want to thank you for helping me again with such a precious gift.  It’s something she will cherish for ever and will definitely be handed down for generations.
I appreciate your help in the process and you should know how extraordinary these quilts  are, words really can not express it.  If you had been there to see her reaction you would truly know.
Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.
Nancy, Norman, OK

 Sandi:

The quilt for Ava arrived yesterday.  It is exquisite – more beautiful than any of the photos online. Thank you so much for all your hard work and dedication to this project.   Your rush on the quilt was so appreciated.  Everything is high quality and the details you suggested are spectacular.  I certainly hope that this quilt will keep her in our hearts, as we are miles apart.  Thanks again for all you did to make her fifth birthday a special day! 
 I would recommend Quilt Stories to anyone for all occasions.  Now I must think of a reason to have another one done for myself!  You will definitely be hearing from me again.  Have a blessed day.  May the Lord’s light shine on you today.
