Quilting guild finishes a woman’s quilting legacy
Many members of the community walked into Superior Town Hall today and experienced true artistry in quilting. Created by one daughter’s talented mother.
A display of amazing intricate quilts were on display during an estate sale to celebrate Andrea Lien, a major force in the quilting community. Her daughter Erin Lien says her mom was a perfectionist when it came to quilting.
When Andrea passed away in March she left behind two dozen unfinished quilts. But then the Superior Quilting Guild stepped up to help finish Andrea’s projects and continue her legacy. Erin says, “It’s amazing all that they’ve gotten done. And the organization, and the community has just been overwhelming and we are so thankful as a family.”
With all the work put into the quilts, the guild can now relax as the quilts are now being sold to raise money for all the charities Andrea helped out with.
Sandy Carlson played a major role in finishing the quilts and was a huge part of Andrea’s life. She says the process of finishing the quilts was a, “work of love to help Erin and her mom’s legacy."
The Liens were so grateful for everyone who came. Erin says many were from different states as far as Oklahoma!
And now Andrea’s memory now lives on in the quilts. Especially since there is a specially memory patch on each one so everyone knows they have a part of her legacy.
