This quilt has the shortest time-line of any of the Coastal Quilters': it was made over Christmas week in December 2005 in Dodge Cove for Paul Ramer, a former resident, who had terminal colon cancer. Paul and his family had moved to Saltspring Island, but he returned every summer for salmon fishing and kept up his friendships in the area. He was very touched by the love and effort the quilt represented, proudly displaying it to all his southern friends and visitors, and slept under it the last few weeks of his life.
