Today’s post is about a quilt made by a friend of mine. It’s a Signature Quilt made by Anne, who is also on the Painterly Patches course at Farnworth UCAN.
Anne is a volunteer at the Centre and an enthusiastic advocate of its benefits. She is also a keen stitcher so was an obvious choice when deciding who should make the quilt.
The original idea of having a signature quilt was suggested by Julia, who is an administrator at the Centre. She had seen one in Rochdale and thought it would be a good idea for Farnworth. Anne then suggested that it be made in the style of a house as Farnworth UCAN is run by St. Vincent’s Housing Association. Many people who use the building are tenants of St. Vincent’s.
Anne asked people to sign the relevant part and coordinated the project, including embroidering the St. Vincent’s logo and the words “Signature Quilt”. Julia and Anne put the panels together and Anne worked to bring the quilt to this point.
The quilt is a wonderful example of a community project bringing everyone together.
Well done, Anne and Julia.
