Laurene touched countless lives in her more than 50 years of church and community service.

As owner of The Quilted Apple, Founder of the Arizona Quilter's Guild, President of the Arizona Quilt Search Project, and member of the International Quilt Council, Laurene has sparked the love of hand quilting and applique in many lives throughout the world.
