Shelter in Place

“Shelter in Place” is a visual representation of what we all went through during the Pandemic in 2020.  Our members got involved by making houses:  working from home, using their own fabrics, then mailing or dropping off blocks to the project’s coordinator and primary contributor, Jane Haworth.  Although it was originally thought we could meet in person to put the quilt together, in January we were still social distancing so Jane put the quilt top together herself.  It was quilted by Karla and John Rogers of Precision Quiltworks in Nevada City.


The quilt includes 207 houses and 18 trees and measures 76” x 93.”  It was made by Jane Haworth and 21 members of the Foothill Quilters Guild:  Marylee Drake, Peggie Wormington, Jill Hester, Laura Rucker, Annette LeFrancois, Renee Hills, Vicki Temple, Lynn Tubbe, Marina Towne, Dorothy Van Pelt, Jeanette Sproul, Kathy Brown, Shellie Fisher, Colleen Voet, Lynn McAuliffe, Karen Polli, Patti Lease, Lori Heitz, Lola Stamey, Melody Peters, and Maureen Burke.  The pattern, “Villages,” was designed by Pat Sloan and is free on the Internet.
