Cot Cover

This quilt was commissioned by Teresa McGlynn for her business of transporting bodies from their place of residence (or hospice) to the funeral home. She had contacted me about making something that could be used for her Catholic and Christian families.  She had been using a  plain upholstery fabric to cover the wrapped bodies. She allowed me to make all the design decisions, which included the cross  surrounded by a light to dark scale of watercolor fabrics. It was tied and the binding stitched by Martha’s Quilters.  Feedback from Teresa has been extremely positive, families feel a strong connection to the religious symbolism and are comforted by the quilt.

Nativity Quilt

This quilt was made by Martha’s Quilters using a pattern published by Paper Panache.  It was paper pieced by a team of 6 women over a period of 6 weeks.  It was auctioned at the church Fall Festival for a price of $2200.  It was the most money we have ever made on a group quilt.
