This quilt was made in honor of Gary Yepsen’s ordination using the liturgical colors for the different seasons. It was sandwiched and tied by the ladies of Martha’s Quilters and presented to Gary on December 7, 2016.
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.
