A Celebration Quilt

Thought I would share a quilt I made for my cousin to present to a couple who are moving out of state.  They moved here when they bought her family's home place in Huntsville, a small rural community.  For those who live in NC, did you know that Huntsville almost became the capital of NC????  Just think how different our little neck of the woods would be!!  After being part of the community for a few years, they have decided to move again to be closer to family.   As a going away gift, the Huntsville Historical Society wanted to present a memory quilt to them in honor of their work and friendships in the community. 

Here is a close-up of the center.  They had pictures of the historical home in each season.  I wanted to make these the focal point of the quilt.

Around the center I added words and photos
Huntsville Methodist Church
This church was closed years ago, but the historical society is preserving the church.  It is used for weddings, funerals, special services, and a beautiful Christmas Lovefeast
A dime at a time
This was his favorite saying at all the yard sales, bake sales, etc for the society
You can't have a gathering without lots of food!
They will be greatly missed by the Huntsville community.
