Donated by Dawn Wilson

This quilt, titled "Pin Wheels", is donated in memory of Gladys Wilson and Gladys Cespedes.

"I donate this quilt in loving memory of my beloved grandmother, Gladys Cespedes, and dear mother-in-law, Gladys Wilson (Mamaw). Both women were remarkable for their strength, love of family, humor, and practicality. Hospice in Georgia and North Carolina provided loving care as these angels went to meet their Master. My Grandmother was an avid quilter up to the last two years of her life. Many family members have beautiful quilts she and her sisters made while coffee and gossip flowed. All my quilting friends please remember to sign your quilts. My family is unsure who the artist is behind several of our family quilts, but we enjoy guessing. My favorite quilt, which I know she had a hand in making, was made of scraps of silk used in the making of parachutes for WWII (or at least that is the family story). Mamaw quilted in her earlier days. She endured many tough times in the Appalachian hills of North Carolina. I have never met a more generous and truly loving woman. Although she did not have much in the way of material wealth, she never turned away a person in need. Her house was frequently a place of refuge for people down on their luck. She accepted people as they were, offered to help and never judged them. I have seen a few quilts she made. They were durable, practical, and definitely 'scrappy'. A lot like Mamaw, they were meant to keep you warm without being overly fussy."

My Sister and I are retired nurses. Although my Mother was very proud of us she always said she could never be a nurse. When my Father had cancer and then a stroke, my Mother rose to the occasion and became his primary caretaker. I truly admire her for this because I know how much strength and courage it took for her to manage his care. She devoted her life to caring for him during those last few years. When he died 2 years ago they had been married for almost 60 years. Their marriage was strong … 'for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part'."

As children, Gerrie and I went to church and school together, first through twelfth grade. High school was special since we walked to school together every day. As adults, we sometimes didn't see each other often since she stayed in our home town and I moved away, but the bond was always there and when we were together it was as if we'd never been apart.

Gerrie lived a life of love, compassion and kindness, a devoted wife and companion to her husband Fred, and a wonderful Mother to their three sons. I will love and miss her for as long as I live and think of her always as the Sister God forgot to give me."

Tulip Time

Donated by Rebecca Laine

67" x 51" Quilt machine pieced by Rebecca Laine and machine quilted by Gaytha Lindensmith.

This quilt uses the Log Cabin Tulip pattern and is donated in memory of Betty Ann Lee Gillelan (1940 – 2010).

"Our cousin Betty Ann Lee Gillelan had a gift for friendship, bringing people together, and getting them to enjoy themselves. Perhaps she saw so much sadness and dysfunction in her years as a social welfare caseworker and administrator that she compensated by fostering happy and meaningful interactions wherever she could. Whether organizing a family reunion, initiating a neighborhood block party in a neighborhood that had never had one, serving "English High Tea" to garden clubbers on her antique china, improvising a reception on short notice for dozens of out-of-towners attending an uncle's funeral, or sitting at an old friend's hearth with her feet tucked under her, Betty gave every moment her very best. During her long years of public service, she focused on retirement as a sort of interim Promised Land. When she finally reached it, she launched balloons from her workplace parking lot. Then she bought a vintage jaguar (vanity plate "BAG's JAG") and transformed her nondescript carport into a cozy sunroom where she could entertain friends or vegetate among her flowers. Betty had only a few years of retirement freedom before being ambushed, first by cancer, then by the major stroke which took her life – in early May, Tulip Time, when she saw every blossom as a fulfillment of the Biblical promise of rebirth and everlasting life."

Donated by Norma Baldwin

58 ½" x 48" Quilt machine pieced by Norma Baldwin & machine quilted by Bonnie Spoon of Bonnie Bee Quilting.

This quilt is an original design by Norma and is donated in honor of America's Military.

This red, white & blue quilt represents all branches of the Military who have fought to keep America safe. These are the real heroes, the real warriors, the thousands of men and women who bravely sacrificed their lives and limbs for the unequaled nation of America. They have kept America safe and have paid the ultimate price so each of us can live freely. These warriors deserve and have fully earned our highest respect and gratitude. They have left their loved ones behind to serve our nation and to do whatever the situation or moment required of them, without any consideration of personal cost to themselves.

There is no greater honor than for a man (or woman) to lay down their life for another. God Bless these warriors and God Bless the Unites States of America. In God We Trust.
