QUILTING GROUP AT LOVE WALK

26 March 2018

By popular request, Love Walk residents recently started a new quilting group.

First, the group looked at fabrics, colours and styles of quilts, as well as how to make one.  Then, everyone started cutting out fabric squares, and laying them out in patterns to design how they’d like their quilts to look. Next, the residents will do a sample piece – probably a wall hanging, before deciding whether to take this further and design a full quilted bedspread, for example. 

“We were really engrossed in cutting out the fabric and before we knew it, the time had passed by,” commented Penny Brice, Activities Co-ordinator. “This is a resident-led project and it is good for exercising fine motor skills, trying out different possibilities and making decisions. Last but not least, quilting is a good backdrop to having a good chat and lots of fun!”
