How would you like to be part of a huge worldwide project for quilters? Ann’s latest project calls for quilts to be donated to the Hampden Park Quilt Project, taking place around May 2013.
5,000 quilts of 40” square (or close) are needed to cover Scotland’s international football pitch at Hampden Park in Glasgow. Aerial photographs will be taken and sold. The quilts will be auctioned off and those left will be adopted by care homes throughout Scotland. The aim of the project is to raise awareness of dementia and how it affect not only the person affected but their families and friends.
Any design of quilt will do but if you are having trouble deciding then FREE downloadable quilt patterns will appear regularly on the following websites:
Quilts can be sent to the following:
- Ann Hill Quilter, Mouswald House, Mouswald, Dumfries, DG1 4LT, Scotland
- UK Alzheimer Scotland, 22 Drumsheugh Gardens, Edinburgh, EH3 7RN
- Scottish Football Museum, Hampden Park, Glasgow, G42 9BA
TIME IS RUNNING OUT – so all contributions greatly appreciated.
