Quilt with a Story
Carol Hunt from Midway donated this quilt to our "Happy Chemo Project" which is this year's Charity Project. Carol tell us that: "This quilt top was given to me in 1990 by Virginia 'Rusty' Hendrick. She is an award winning hand quilter, past secretary of the NQA and purveyor of a portable plastic quilt rack which she sold at quilt venues. It was given to her by the mother of a young lady who was working on it and died of cancer before she could finish it and the mother did not quilt so gave it to Rusty. I admired it and Rusty gave it to me. The ladies faces were all askew as were the kimonos. I took them apart and redid them. I backed it, hand quilted it, and bound it. We recently moved from California to Utah and I came across it and felt it should go to the Quilts for Cancer." Thank you Carol, for giving us the background story to this fun quilt.
