Friendship and Support

Our guild girls rallied together and made a Memory Quilt for Charlene.  She lost her husband and son in a plane crash last Father's Day.

Laying out the Nine Patches
Colleen found a great free pattern online.  It is called Durhamshire by Lecien Fabrics.  This was a perfect jelly roll pattern and we ordered Snowbird Batiks designed by Laundry Basket Quilts from Hamels Fabrics.

While Charlene was away, we got together and sewed this up for her.

The pattern didn't call for the piano key border, but we had enough fabric left to make it.  I don't think that you can go wrong with a piano key border.  We also made the quilt two rows wider and two rows longer making it a large throw quilt.

And finally, here is Charlene with her quilt.
It's nice to be able to pull together as a group to do something for a hurting friend.  We love you, Charlene!


  1. What a thoughtful, caring project to do for Charlene. She will cherish it all her life, along with the friends who are there to show such loving support. Everyone needs to belong to a group like this.

  2. What a fabulous quilt and such a treasure for Charlene. A quilt so full of love and support. Beautiful!
