Central Coast 2000 Quilt

     The Central Coast Quilt was created from February 1999 through April 2000 by members of the San Luis Obispo quilting group known as Applique Friends.  Design and Construction Coordinators were Signe James and LaDonna Christensen, who incorporated the major elements of the Central Coast landscape into a design based on the shape of a Mission bell.  Borders were prepared by Collette Blair, June Fincher, Betsy Lopresto,  D.J. Martin, and Barbara Merony.  Please see below for thumbnail close-ups, and for an identification key and credits for  each of the quilt's smaller elements. 


     The Central Coast Quilt has appeared in a number of regional and national shows, and received an Honorable Mention award at the American Quilter's Society show in Paducah, Kentucky, held in April 2001.
