Casa de Manana Quilt
“The Seashore”, is a quilt that was constructed by the Casa de Mañana Quilters.
The quilters are Cynthia Bates, Suzanne Friend, Joan Keetch, Martha Convery and Martha Erickson. They applied their talents to appliqué and embroider 49 eight-inch squares in a “Seashore” theme, some subjects from the “sea” and others from the “shore.”
The squares were assembled and a border applied by Martha Erickson. Then, Cynthia Bates used her considerable expertise to hand quilt the top to the backing. To complete the quilt, Suzanne Friend and Martha E. bound it. There is a sleeve on the back for a rod to hang it and a label applied on a corner of the reverse.
Plans are to display the quilt in the upper Lounge at Casa de Mañana for the enjoyment of the residents.
