Quilt-making is a tradition in Heidi St. Royal's family. Her mom got her started in 1984, the year the Olympic Games came to Los Angeles. "My first quilt depicted the 1984 Olympics," she said. "It was red, white and blue and had the five Olympics rings in it. Each had the events that we were so lucky in the drawing to attend — equestrian, diving, track and women's and men's decathlon." Now, the Burbank resident's new passion is doing pictorial quilts, she said, where the quilter has a photograph printed on transfer paper and it can be transferred onto fabric.

Marianne Love MONTROSE -- One might be surprised to walk into Kris Kline's La Crescenta home and find just one or two of them gracing the living room. Kline has been quilting since she signed up her daughter, Katie, for a sewing lesson. Katie was 10 at the time. Today Katie is 17. In the meantime, her mother has made nearly 100 quilts. "My most memorable quilt is the one Katie and I made when she was 13 years old," Kline said. "We used embroidered dish towels my great-grandmother left and cut out the embroidered motif and made a quilt block that we still have."
