Scholarship inspires memory project

The quilt was inspired by our Summer pilgrimage to Florence, Assisi, and Rome. We call it Cathedral Window and included in it some of the religious emblems we saw at the various holy sites we visited as well as the panels naming the fruits of the Spirit. We designed it together, then she did the sewing while I did the crochet work.  Scholarship recipients Terri Meaney and Kathleen DeRouche
