Ideas were bountiful yesterday at the sewing session in Glasgow and much progress was made on our panels.
Our honorary President, Susan Warren, brought along some beautiful fabric from Malawi which will make up part of the backing of the finished quilt, as well as some of the leaves that will go on the tree centrepiece. This fabric symbolises the strength of the partnership between Haemophilia Scotland and our friends in Malawi and will be a nice addition to the quilt.
So far, we’ve received panels from the USA, India, England and Scotland and look forward to receiving more in time for the January 31 deadline. When you’ve finished your panel, please send it to our office:
Fourth Floor, Hayweight House
23 Lauriston Street
Edinburgh EH3 9DQ
We’re hoping to put together a book that would accompany the quilt which would give a bit more information about each of the panels. Would you please include a photo of yourself and a paragraph about you and what your panel represents and means to you. Feel free to include this with your panel when you send it in, or you could separately send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are very excited to see your panels and what the end result of this international collaborative effort will look like!
