Story behind the Oma Patch:

When I was a little girl I noticed that all the blankets my Oma (grandmother) made had one square that was red. One day I asked her why she did that, and she said to me “It is how people know it was made by me, like a signature.” For many years I wondered how I should sign my pieces, but it always came back to that little patch of red my Oma used. In loving memory of all the joy and happiness she brought to me and shared with so many others, I hope to honor her using a little red tag, the Oma patch.
