Quilting A Memorial. . .

   

Ladies with big hearts and skillful hands!

Each year, the New Braunfels Area Quilt Guild, in cooperation with Hope Hospice, creates a Memorial Quilt, featuring blocks sewn from fabric that is special to surviving families of Hospice patients who have died in the previous year.  Families send in all sorts of fabric from which to make the blocks.  This fabric may come from a beloved shirt, a handkerchief, or any article of clothing.  This results in a beautiful unique quilt that memorializes the family's loved one. 

The completed 2014 Hope Hospice bereavement quilt  is

"The Wind Beneath My Wings"

It will be dedicated September 21st. 

Committee members pictured are (left to right)  Peggy Karakula (Committee Chairperson), Kelleigh Sommer, and  and Carolyn Yestrumsky. These ladies are so compassionate and do a wonderful job!  They represent our Guild at its finest.
