Charolette Carpenter, left, watches as donated quilts are given away by New Lexington students
A group of students from the New Lexington school put together these small quilts, which they also donated to Primrose residents during Happy Hour.
Charolette Carpenter (standing to the left of the picture) had cut all of the squares over the years. They were put in Charolette’s property auction.
The leader of the student group was the one who had bought the bags of squares. Then, assembling her group of students together, they made the small quilts.
The residents were so surprised — not to mention a bit tickled — to be able to pick one out on their own.
Charolette confided afterwards that she had felt overwhelmed that day — she hadn’t realized just how many squares she had cut over the years until seeing the quilts being handed out. Charolette also expressed hope that the residents would think of her whenever they used their quilts.
Postscript: Since then, a relative has found more squares in her house. They had just enough to make a couple of baby quilts.
