|Marty Miller and her Son Eric with his ‘Guitar Hero’|
I love quilting for my customers!¬† I love to hear the stories of why a quilt is made and who it’s for.¬† Sometimes a very special quilt will come to me with a story that touches my heart.¬† It gives me a feeling of privilege to be a part of a customers special quilt.¬† One such customer is Marty Miller.¬†I think many of us have kids that love to play video games to pass their time.¬† But Marty’s son Eric took his love of the game Guitar Hero to levels that most of us won’t see our kids go to.¬† In August 2008, Eric found himself at the Aerosmith Guitar Hero Contest in Boston, after several local and national competitions.¬† To Marty’s surprise and pleasure, Eric won that contest.¬† He also won a really cool motorcycle.¬† Marty designed and¬†made this quilt to show her love for her son to celebrate his special day in a way that only a Quilter could conceive of!
Thanks Marty for sharing your story!
