Pauline’s Quilt

paulines-quilt-nov-2011-v2

Pauline was one of the earliest and most loyal members of Old Town Quilters and she and her husband Paul hosted many of our summer garden parties in their beautiful garden.  Very sadly Pauline died in March 2012.  Knowing that she was ill our group made a Friendship Quilt for Pauline  in the summer of 2011.  We decided on a blue and white theme as blue was her favourite colour and all our members made at least one square and there were some squares left over which we incorporated onto the back of the quilt.  The quilt was presented to Pauline at our monthly meeting to her great surprise.  Paul says that he will never forget the stunned look on Pauline’s face when we presented her with the quilt.  Quilters the world over express their love and friendship through the making and giving of a quilt.  This was ours for Pauline who we all loved.
