Patchwork Quilt (Tipperary)

by Geraldine O’Keeffe

Geraldine O’Keeffe and the ladies of Newport Women’s Shed in Tipperary met on Monday evenings to create a queen-size patchwork quilt. Each square is a dedicated reflection on the loss of a lost loved one. Guided by an experienced quilter, each member created their own unique piece which, when assembled into the collective whole, has become a metaphor for the role of the group in the lives of these Tipperary women.
