About Us

At the age of 8 my grandmother took it upon herself to keep me and my cousins occupied and taught us how to quilt. My mother, sisters and aunts very also material factors in teaching me to love “cutting big pieces of fabric into little pieces and then sewing little pieces of fabric into big pieces”. My all time favorite of all quilts were those that resembled “the coat of many colors” and I have loved making “scrappy” quilts ever since. I completed my very first, “done completely by myself”, quilt at the age of 13 although I had quilted with others on many other quilts in the meantime. Quilts were a very common wedding, graduation or “just because” gift amongst our family.

I took the leap and bought a longarm quilter in 2017 and have loved the completed look and feel of a professionally quilted product so much that when I retired from my real job I decided to open up a business doing long arm quilting for other quilt piecers. I appreciate the beauty and the skill that the quilters put into their product and enjoy finishing the quilts for them in hopes that they love them as much as I loved completing them.

Lisa Bounds – Manager / Quilter
Hello! I would like to introduce myself, my name is Lisa Bounds. I am originally from Southern California, and I moved to Saint George, Utah twenty-eight years ago. I am married to Gil Bounds and we have four children, along with seven beautiful grandchildren.

My background is diversified including: twenty years in the corporate side of business, interior design, and substance abuse counseling. Also, I was a chairman for the Jubilee of Trees (previously loved trees) in St. George, UT for five years.

I am grateful that my mother taught me to sew at a young age because it has given me the knowledge to sew clothing, costumes for party companies, the parade of homes and interior design companies for the past forty years. I have always had an interest in quilting.

I have been quilting professionally for the last few years. I have quilted over three hundred quilts for customers that I am grateful to say have become good friends to me. They trust me with their treasures as I am very detail oriented. I truly understand the number of hours and love that goes into each quilt I work on. I am pleased to have the opportunity to join Irene with this new venture The Quilter’s Nook, LLC providing professional quality quilting for our customers.

“The best things in life are the people we love, the places we’ve been, and the quilts we’ve made along the way! “

Beautiful things come together, one stitch at a time!!
