The quilt of love....
This wonderful quilt was given to us from Marilyn Pettit. It is stunning. I am going to write the commentary on it exactly as Marilyn wrote it...
The quilt was inspired by the courage of Annette and Bob's herculean efforts and determination to cycle from Lands End to John O'Groats virtually unsupported in recognition of Nick's bravery and patience awaiting a heart transplant.
The red sashes and borders represent the blood circulation carrying the oxygen needed for such a mammoth journey.
The Cornish flag of St Piran of Cornwall
Two large hearts for Annette & Bob
The flag of St Andrew of Scotland
The sky, tartan and sea of Scotland
This gift means the world to Bob and myself. It will become a family heirloom. The workmanship is exquisite and the thought, love, care and time that Marilyn has put into creating it is truly wonderful. Marilyn, we thank you from our hearts.
Annette, Bob & Nick
