  • When Vi McMurtry was 6 years old, her grandmother taught her how to quilt the old fashioned way: embroidering every single stitch by hand. Thus began a lifelong love of creating quilts with her own hands. Today, though carpel tunnel syndrome has robbed her of the ability to do hand stitching, she still creates cozy quilts on her sewing machine.

    McMurtry said she believes she has made 93 quilts in her lifetime. The majority of her creations are given away as baby gifts, shower gifts, wedding and graduation gifts. She has only sold one of those 93 quilts.
