"It's all about telling a story," says Bev Crouse, the quilter who took on the task of creating the new piece.
Each block has a meaning, she says, and each block has a story behind it.
The original quilt was destroyed by fire in November 2011, which also destroyed the main lodge. Owner Robert Risley pledged to rebuild the lodge within a year. On top of that though, there were many pieces of art lost to the fire that were unique to the lodge. Artists from Queens County and beyond were contacted, tasked with creating new pieces to give the lodge that extra touch.
Ideas and suggestions on what the quilt panels should contain poured in from around the world, and those were culled down to 13 blocks centred around the iconic White Point Beach Lodge fireplace. The quilt also travelled far and wide to trade shows and events. People were invited to add their own stitch to the quilt, to say they had a part in creating the new piece.
Over 500 people put their stitch in the piece, and signed their name in a booklet to prove they had a hand.
