Quilting Muriel is a 95 year young New York quilter, animal lover, and Twitter darling.
Muriel has created several one of a kind, hand made pieces exclusively for her good friend Elayne Boosler’s Tails of Joy. Through her membership in a non-profit quilting guild, Muriel made countless quilts for returning vets at veterans’ hospitals, and foundling and childrens’ hospitals.
Happy Birthday Muriel! 95 Years Young on September 5th.

Muriel’s wonderful quilt arrived, and our rescue dachshund Linus just loves it! Though he’s a little cranky that the side with the doxies is against the wall. I told him we’d flip it over every now and then, like we do with mattresses and guests who’ve passed out on the sofa.
Sending much love to you and Muriel!! Oh, and wrote a poem to thank you both:
I love my gorgeous doggie quilt
The way a Scotsman loves his kilt,
The way the Lakers loved their Wilt
The way a swordsman loves his hilt,
The way “The Bachelor” loves to jilt,
The way his fans loved Uncle Milt,
The way champagne just loves being spilt,
The way a builder loves his silt,
The way a preacher loves his guilt,
The way Quixote loves to tilt!
Who made my gorgeous doggie quilt?
By gorgeous Muriel it was built!
