On Williams Street started in January 2014 on a quiet little street . Two sisters had been toying with a dream for a while and decided it was the right time to make it come true. We come from a house full of girls with a very creative mother. She taught us all to love art and imagination. Yes, alligators will try to get your toes when you pull the stopper for the bathtub and don't get out in time. Missy loves appliqué and bringing textural elements into her quilting. Kimie loves paper piecing and can create just about anything with a series of straight lines. We both love color and modern twists on traditional designs. We love working together to create fun and imaginative quilts for all ages. We hope you will enjoy making them and love your quilts for years to come.
