Darlene Bordson had a passion for the art of quilting. Her creations showcased creativity and skill of design. Having a keen sense of color and pattern, she created balance very pleasing to the eye. Random squares of fabric motivated her even more to sew an attractive “crazy quilt” unique and interesting. Mondays she searched the storage boxes of pre-cut squares, taking them home and returning the following Monday with newly sewn quilt tops. Darlene continued sewing at home even after she was unable to come to quilting. Lyle would come to pick up squares and fabric, bring her sewn quilt tops back, and take more squares home each week.
We currently have 20 of Darlene’s quilt tops that need to be finished to make completed quilts. Darlene was amazing and is dearly missed by all of us who knew her well. Along with her skills, energy, and enthusiasm, Darlene will always be remembered with tenderness and affection.
