Guild History


Charter members Patsy Starkey, Judith Phillips and Carolyn Weaver stand behind Abbie Pearson, now of Denver, CO, who was the owner of Quilts and Calicos. Abbie’s shop was where the first meeting of the Azalea City Quilters’ Guild was held in June of 1980.  This picture was taken at the May, 2013 “Quilts of the Gulf Coast” Show when Abbie and her daughter Trisha were visiting Mobile.  The quilt in the background is the work of Master quilt artist Linda Dyken and is titled Historic Mobile.
