38 Quilts were presented to the East Anglian Children's Hospice in Ipswich at the Cotton Club Quilters Annual General Meeting held in May 2015.
The quilts were made by the members from fabric donated to the group from past members and those who had sadly passed away.
It was wonderful to see so many different patterns and fabrics used in the making of the Quilts.

HERON'S PICTORIAL QUILT (a picture is on the Gallery page)

HERON'S PICTORIAL QUILT (a picture is on the Gallery page)
This pictorial quilt was started by one of the Cotton Club Quilters of Bredfield, Valerie Winchester.
Valerie died in 2014 and this quilt was found in an unfinished state. She 
was a long standing member and chairman of the group for several years.
It was handed to me by one of Valerie,s friends.
On close examination and realising how much work Valerie had already put into it,I felt that it should definitely be completed, in memory of her.
Valerie had obviously spent many hours on the project as she had pieced all the Herons together with her usual flair of style and colour and her love of nature.

I had to decide how to make the background and appliqué all the Heron,s onto it.
A border was added to reflect a picture frame and some quilting added to reflect the watery and marshy atmosphere of the picture.

I am sure Valerie would be pleased to know that it may give some people pleasure to view it.
