Firehouse Quilts of Colorado - Thank you so very much for giving/sharing of your time and expertise.  The quilt I received was a southwestern theme with kokopelli on it.  I had a kokopelli trinket hanging on the rear view mirror of the car I crashed in.  Your quilt gave me such an emotional hug.  I am so grateful.  Craig Hospital patient Charleen from Idaho
 
Dear Firehouse Quilts, Thank you so much for donating the beautiful quilts to Craig!  This has been a challenging time for us all, and we appreciate your kind and thoughtful donation.  It warms our hearts to know that we have so much support from community members like you (before, during and after COVID).. With so much gratitude, Craig Hospital Staff. 
 
Good morning, I wanted to make sure I said “Thank You” for my quilt that was given to me here at Craig Hospital.  You make bad days better!  Tyler

Kari Nichols’ New Adventure ...

If you have shopped at Holly’s Quilt Cabin in the past, you probably know Kari Nichols, who was the shop manager and pattern designer for Mountainpeek Creations.  Kari retired in early 2020 and started her own pattern business called Quilting Renditions.  Kari was very generous to Firehouse Quilts while at Holly’s, giving us discounts on fabric as the board made fabric purchases.  We wanted you to know what Kari is doing now and how to access her new patterns if you are looking for new ideas.  Her website is:  https://www.quiltingrenditions.com
