    Amazing! After I was taken back by the presentation of the quilt delivery mode, the quilts are the epitome of elegance! I felt like my ancestors were speaking to me.

    After my holiday hospital stay, I came home to a beautiful package containing my beautiful Links 75th Anniversary Quilt. Kim Alexis Newton, my Links Sister, has created a stunning commemorative to Links, which is the most gorgeous piece of soft art I’ve seen to date. As Kim has dedicated much of her work to fundraisers, I hope each person who is a member of a community service organization find these exquisite quilts as a superb piece of artwork and a unique opportunity to give back.

The messaging and images on the quilt is perfect for our 75th Anniversary! I am beyond thrilled that I invested in our commemorative quilt. It’s a keepsake I’ll use and treasure forever.

From the beautiful message inside the box to the storage bag, everything was class personified.

I am so pleased that I made the decision to purchase this quilt. As I am someone who sews I appreciate the care that went into the making of this quilt. The quality of the stitching is superb and the artwork is representative of our organization. My quilt is proudly displayed in my family room and everyone who sees it compliments it’s beauty.

    Exceptional & Profound. My 75th., Anniversary Legacy Quilt left such an impact on me………I turned around and purchased another for my daughter……..You Are Precious, Able & So Worthy. If this does not overwhelmingly let my Sister Kim know I LOVE her quilts…… then my name is not Pamela!! Oh yes……I also purchased another 75th Anniversary Legacy quilt for my mother who resides in SC and she will receive it for Mother’s Day or her birthday in October 2022. I cannot just ship it to her but I will present the quilt to her! The quilt means that much. Thank you, Kim, your quilts are EXTRAORDINARY pieces of LOVE & ART. PB💚🤍
