Researcher comments/remarks
In May of 2011 a Coast Quilters member contacted The Breeze radio station offering an earthquake quilt made by Coast Quilters of Whangaroa. The quilt was made as a gesture of love and support for Christchurch following the 22 February 2011 earthquake. The central block of the quilt features the ChristChurch Cathedral and is embellished by embroidery work. The quilt was donated to Canterbury Museum and demonstrates the widespread support for the people of Christchurch following the earthquakes.
