Ruth at one of our quilting get aways. Doesn't she look amazing to be a mother of 6 and grandmother to 8?
Ruth designed this beautiful "Herb" quilt that hangs in her store.
I think she is amazing to have created this her self. Ruth loves working with wool, and combined the traditional cotton for piecing with wool for applique.
I worked part time for Ruth's shop before moving to Southern Utah. I have learned so much from her.
Ruth can explain the many purposes herbs can play in promoting health.
Did you know that red clover can be used to treat respiratory infections and congestion?
Valerian has been used since the time of the Greeks to treat digestive problems.
Lavender is beautiful just to look at. It also can be used to help us relax and get to sleep at night.
When Ruth first made this quilt a group of friends asked for her to develop a pattern. She has been so busy running her store that she never has gotten to that part.
Arnica helps in the treatment of bruises and sprains.
Ruth's business is located in a old farm house that has been converted into a store. Her husband Craig has developed a beautiful garden where they grow fresh herbs, plants and trees.
Seeing a quilt inside the store makes entering feel comfortable and inviting.
Bergamot is a citrus fruit. The rind is used for extracting an essential oil. Many uses including used as an antiseptic, and helps in the healing of wounds.
Each year Ruth does a quilt show around the gardens and property surrounding her store. She gathers the works of her family and friends and drapes the fences and walkways with beautiful quilts. A great way to display her two loves, quilting and herbs.
