Quilters tell the stories of those we love

 

Quilters tell the stories of those we love – Rabun Manor DIllard, GA

Six fabulous quilters are staying at Rabun Manor this week end.  They have a very special task ahead of them.  Their focus is to make quilts from appropriate  clothing of deceased their  parents for their children.  The children will have these lovingly made quilts as a keepsake.

I am especially touched by this project because Elleke Beza, an award winning quilter from Reston, Va took quilt pieces my mother had cut out hoping to make a quilt for her great grand children.  Unfortunately, my mom died of lung cancer after just six shorts months of diagnosis.  Elleke took my mother’s pieces and finished the three quilts.  In just a few weeks I will be able to give one of them to her first great grandchild, Claire.

You don’t want to miss this wonderful event held in Franklin NC, for the quilting lovers!
