About the Quilter: Virginia Allen

By Barbie Butz

March 29, 2021

Often, when people pass, they leave us wonderful memories of them that we cherish the rest of our lives. I want to tell you about a special woman, Virginia Allen, who not only left wonderful memories, but left samples of her creative talent for us to enjoy for years to come. She was a quilter and those of you who quilt know how much of you goes into each quilt you produce.

Virginia made dozens of quilts and many of them she donated to nonprofits for fundraisers. They were works of art and are still enjoyed and appreciated by their owners. I first met Virginia when she joined Quota of Atascadero in 2003. She had moved to Atascadero in 1974 to live near her son and daughter-in-law, Jim and Janet Stecher. She was also and active member of Chapter VF of the Philanthropic Educational Organization, (PEO), and attended the First Methodist Church of Atascadero. Continue reading...
