Christine "Belle" DuPont of Quincy hand stitched this quilt, which is a combination of the Mosaic and Star pattern, along with the addition of triangles and squares of various sizes. The beautiful fabric used is a mixture of leftover children’s clothing and old scraps that were shared in her weekly quilting group. This quilt is one of three using the same pattern, which Christine created for her three daughters before she passed away.
“This quilt is important to me because this is the last quilt my mother made,” says her daughter Alice as she reflects on her mother’s final gift. “And this was her gift because she sewed every stitch by hand."
