Terpenning Quilt

In August 2009 Extreme Makeover: Home Edition came to our town of Beavercreek, Ohio. Their goal was to provide new housing for James and Shannon Terpenning.

One of the women in our quilt guild had connections with the builder that was chosen for this project. As a result, the Miami Valley Quilters’ Guild volunteered to make a quilt for each member of the family, and I offered to make a portrait quilt for James and Shannon. Nearly 40 quilters worked together to make seven quilts in just five days.
