"Betsey, Thank you so very much for all your help in my search for the "perfect" quilt. The quality, size, color, condition is absolutely Amazing! Love it ... and in addition to looking beautiful on my bed, when I look at it I have feelings that bring me back to my childhood. Many fond memories and I will keep this quilt in my family for future generations! Loved talking with you and thank you again. Enjoy the rest of summer!" - M., CT
"Hello Betsey, What can I say? Your finished expertise on my quilt has given it a new life and exceeded my expectations. I fully appreciate all your detailed work and I like very much the vocal point effect of the flowers you described. It makes it distinctive and I think of my aunt when I look at the variety of fabric. Thank you for restoring my family heirloom. I will take good care of it. Please stay safe and sound." - B.B.
Comments from a recent lecture by Betsey:
"Thank you for your most enjoyable and informative presentation. Your quilts are all magnificent!! I loved Linsey too. So many of our members told me how much they enjoyed today's meeting. Your practical advice is great." - J.S., ME
"I was astonished that the backing you chose exactly matches my bedroom walls! They appear green in the picture but they are the color of that backing.. and that color is prevalent throughout the house! What are the chances of that?" - CG
"Hi Betsey, just a quick update. Your hanging directions were excellent and this beautiful silk quilt has been installed at my daughter's home in Vermont. Her living room has a cathedral ceiling, and the quilt fits perfectly with about five feet remaining from the floor. The edges of the quilt are near the sides of the room. This room has very little natural light so the fabric is safe. Now that it is up, it is spectacular. And very large! Again, thank you and your staff for all your wonderful work. If you ever need a reference for your restoration quality, just call or e-mail! Take care" - D.B, OH
"Hi Betsey, Wanted to let you know that the quilt arrived safely, and it is beautiful. It's amazing to think that this is what it would have looked like a hundred years ago, and now that it's cleaned and restored, that it'll look this way for the next generations in the family, too. We've been sending pictures to C's family, and everyone is stunned -- in a good way. Thanks so much" - R.B. & C.B.
"Hi Betsey, I received the quilt and all I can say is "wow"! The work you did on it is stunning, and I am overjoyed at the end result. I just cannot believe the transformation ... it looks better than new! The quilt had originally belonged to my Great Grandmother, and is very sentimental to me. Now, it is ready for the next seventy five years! Thank you so much and have a Merry Christmas." - D.W.
"Dear Betsey, My childhood quilt is beautiful, and I am so pleased that I can now pass it on to my Granddaughter in pristine condition! Thank you for the wonderful work you do. My best, P."
"I safely received the quilt yesterday -- WOW!!!!!! It looks spectacular, and the color is just right -- I am glad I didn't go the extra step for a whiter color, as I think it looks just perfect now. The difference between before and now is quite amazing -- I knew it was dingy before, but now I see how REALLY DIRTY it was before! I am amazed that you were able to get it to such a clean looking state now. Have a great holiday season!!" - L.V., NE
"Dear Betsey, I never, in my wildest imagination, thought the quilt I brought to you could ever be completely restored – it was a complete mess. It arrived today and I had goosebumps as I unwrapped it. Then, I shed tears of joy. You brought back to life a piece of my childhood – the happiest quilt I have ever seen (but that looked so sad in its disrepair). What a wonderful gift you and your team provide – you restore memories; you make them whole again. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I look forward to stopping into your shop and meeting you someday. " - C.T., NH
" The quilt made it safely to San Francisco! It looks gorgeous. Thank you for bringing it back to life. I will be sure to sew the information you gave me about the quilt and what I can learn from my mother onto the back. " - K.B.
" We received our quilt this week. It looks great. Thank you so much for getting this treasured memory ready for our daughter! " - S.T.
"Just gorgeous! You and your folks did a fantastic job. The fabric you used for the border restoration looks perfect. I am very pleased and grateful for the painstaking, excellent work." - C.K., NY
"My beautiful quilt just arrived - I LOVE IT! Your group did such an amazing job restoring and bringing back my grandmother's quilt. I will treasure it always. I can't thank you enough for all your expertise, hard work, and experience. I am definitely taking your advice and writing the history of this quilt on fabric and attaching it to the quilt for future reference. Thank you again!" - J.D., CT
"Dear Betsey and Lisa.....My 89 year old mom was so thrilled with the quilt! She was so pleased and excited about how wonderful the quilt looked!....The restorer did a beautiful job and my mom is so happy to have it back on her bed." - K.K., NH
"Dear Betsey…am so grateful I found you in “Yankee” (Magazine). My quilt is now again so beautiful and I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work…" - T. M., OH
"(We) received our quilt today. You did such a beautiful job repairing and cleaning it! We are just overwhelmed by the quality of your work. Thank you for restoring this treasure for our family." - E.S. & J.S., IN
"I am utterly, completely delighted with my great-great grandmother's quilt. It is truly amazing what you were able to do with it and I can't wait to display it in our new home! The fabrics, the workmanship, everything about what you did with it is perfect. I know my father will be so pleased when he sees it. Thank you so much. I'm so grateful that I was able to find you all the way down here in Texas." - Jodi Z., TX
"Betsey, I've searched for years for just the right quilt to add warmth and character to my home. I didn't know exactly what I was searching for but in visiting your amazing store I found it! You have a wealth of knowledge and guided me in just the right way to help me find my treasure amidst 500 awesome works of art. I feel so fortunate to have found such an honest and trustworthy resource in my search for the best antique quilts available. Thanks again." - J.S., MA
"Good morning Betsey - I love love love my (purchased) quilt. Thank you so much for finding it for me." - Jane F., CA
"The (purchased) quilt you sent has arrived safely and I am so delighted! It makes me happy every time I look at it. Thank you so much for helping me choose it. I am so glad that I discovered your web site and then your shop, and I suspect I may revisit the site now that I know about the wonderful quilted animals." - Deborah S., Germany
"I still can't believe how beautiful the quilt looks after Rocky Mountain Quilts finished restoring it. I smile ear to ear every time I look at it; one, because of its beauty and two, because of how nice both Betsey and Lisa were and how they cared for the quilt as if it was their own. As I type this, I think of the memories this C.1840 Whig Rose Applique Quilt must hold and dream of the new ones it will create. Thank you so much for doing an impeccable job and please give a big hug to all who were involved." - CAZ Elmhurst, IL
"We can't tell you how delighted we are with the restoration of our handmade quilt. It looks just like it did the day I finished it many years ago. We have missed the quilt while it was being restored, but now that we have it back it is like having a family member back again. Thank you and please extend our thanks to all the hands that gave our quilt new life." - SML&JLL, Stratham, N.H.

"I displayed our (RMQ custom finished and hand quilted) blue and white quilt at our quilt fair and the woman who gave me the antique quilt top originally just about lost her balance when she saw how beautiful it was! I also had offers to buy it...and was told it was the most beautiful quilt in the show, I have to agree." - Laura B., CA
"Dear Betsey, I received my grandmother's crazy quilt this afternoon--it is absolutely stunning! It is so bright and looks brand-new again. My special thanks to the restorer who accomplished my many detailed wishes for bringing the quilt back to life. I also appreciate having the excess materials back. I thank you very much for the time, attention, effort, and the ultimate result you gave me." - J.P., CO.
