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. Visitors most welcome.
