How it All Began
I began making quilts right after graduating college in 1983, learning from a Mennonite college friend. She had made 8 quilts by the time she entered college – what inspiration! I believe in the traditional principles of quilt making and am drawn to the creative venture as well as the detail oriented work involved. Quilts are creative, symbolic and aesthetically pleasing. I have won blue ribbons for two quilts made for my family without the intention of entering them in competition but they won anyway – a pleasant, unexpected surprise! I enjoy working for wonderful people all over the United States and have even worked for a customer in Australia. I treasure learning the stories behind each quilt I service.
There is no certification or degree that can be obtained for quilt restoration however, there is a weeklong intensive course that I took in 2011 in Omaha, NE from Nancy Kirk, a well known quilt restorationist. We had the unforgettable opportunity to study and learn how to care for antique quilts at the International Quilt Museum located at the University of Nebraska.
My name is Kristin Morrow and I am a quilt maker and quilt restoration specialist. I live in Lewisburg, PA with my husband Bill, a geologist, who manages a commercial and environmental well drilling firm. Our two daughters, Meghan and Mikala, are currently away in college.
We share our home with Lily, a devoted corgi and Bobos, a not-so-devoted cat.
