Ar­ca­dian Quil­ters

Ar­ca­dian Quil­ters have been in­volved in a quilt­ing ac­tiv­ity with the res­i­dents at Bupa Round Cor­ner. Our aim was to pro­mote hand work and en­thu­si­asm to the Bupa group in pro­duc­ing an ar­ti­cle they could all share in. Quilt­ing fab­ric was pre­cut and given to those who wanted to join in on mak­ing the group quilt. The blocks are a ba­sic 9 patch and were hand sewn by the res­i­dents at their leisure. We col­lected the blocks late last year and this is the re­sult. We pre­sented the fin­ished quilt, com­plete with a sleeve through which a piece of dowel was threaded to en­able it to be hung on a wall in the es­tab­lish­ment. The most re­ward­ing part was ask­ing those who did a block to iden­tify it. Some con­fu­sion to start with as they couldn’t be­lieve the end re­sult. On their closer in­spec­tion blocks were soon recog­nised and iden­ti­fied caus­ing much laugh­ter. Bupa have given us a chal­lenge in mak­ing a Care Quilt. This will also in­volve res­i­dents and staff. Ar­ca­dian Quil­ters meet at the Gal­ston Health and Com­mu­nity Cen­tre, Cor­ner of the Glade and 17 Ar­ca­dia Road, Gal­ston.
