Pauline Latham: May 2018
The quilts in the photograph were made by the In Stitches group at AMC for premature babies in the Neonatal Unit at Stoke Mandeville Hospital. I am involved in a larger, more formal quilt group, and members often make small quilts like these, together with incubator covers for the unit at SMH. I happen to be the one who delivers them, so when we were looking for a project we could share, it was decided that we would all make little fishes in different colour ways and a variety of fabrics. These were then assembled by Jean Hayward (a quilt teacher who attends the group). I shall be delivering them this week.
The Unit staff are always very grateful to receive the quilts, as the parents of babies in the unit are given them to take home at the end of their stay, so the supply has to be constantly replenished. The In Stitches group usually has as many as 12 ladies involved each week, and the majority took part in this project. For more details about us, click here.
