Anne McCaffrey became a major quilter in the last years of her life. Naturally, still hoping to do many more quilts, she had amassed a huge backlog of material which remained after she passed away.
We’re very pleased that we managed to find a home for all the materials. The Irish Countrywoman’s Association (ICA) took the material and, in short order, produced a magnificent quilt.
Anne’s great friend, Maureen Beirne, arranged for Gigi to see the finished quilt and to meet the three ladies who made it. The pattern used here is a Jacob’s Ladder.
Here are some photos:

We’re very grateful to the ladies of the ICA and particularly to Maureen Beirne for all their efforts.
