Turtles in Paradise

Today I would like to showcase a small wall hanging that I made for a very good friend in March 2010 for her birthday.  Normally I wouldn't show you such an old project, but this one has recently been returned to me under very sad circumstances.  On December 3, 2015 I lost my friend Beverly.  I decided that showing her quilt would be my way of paying my respects to her.  Her loss has left a big hole in mine and all of her friends hearts.  Here is an excerpt from her obituary.

Beverly A. Brown, a retired aerospace administrative professional, died unexpectedly on Thursday, December 3rd, 2015 as a result of an automobile accident. Bev was born in New Bedford, MA, March 28th, 1948 to Edward Earl Brown and Clara Miriam Woolley.

Bev is survived by longtime friends, Jacqueline Grillion, Cherri Kincaid, Joan Winnett, Jennifer Hubert, Dr. Lisa Edwards and many former co-workers from Pan-Am, McDonnell Douglas and Boeing. Bev is also survived by her beloved pet cats Louie, Zoe and Fancy.

Bev had many hobbies which included quilting, sewing, genealogy, photography and creative writing. She loved to travel, touring 12 countries; however, her favorite place to visit was Hawaii, where she traveled numerous times with family and friends. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

 Bev loved turtles!

Here is the label on the back:

And since I was sharing all things Beverly, here is a tote bag that I made her in honor of one of her trips to Hawaii.

Her she is with Zoe:

Good Bye Beverly, you are missed every day!
