Clipston Covid Memory Quilts
Quilts have a long tradition as a communal activity and have often been used to express feelings and memories. We have greatly enjoyed the privilege of co-ordinating this project and creating the amazing quilt from the beautiful, diverse and thought-provoking squares that people have contributed. We have felt the love shining through the images and been moved by the meanings behind them We have developed an album of these which is in the Orbell room and in a slide show below. These together are an important visual and oral history of a tumultuous year.
We hope that this quite magical project which has grown from a small acorn of an idea, will continue to grow and strengthen the wonderful community that is Clipston. The spirit of generosity and kindness is so strong and underpinned by great humour and gratitude for all we have in our lovely village. Together we have definitely achieved far more than we had anticipated. Thank you to everyone that has been involved.
The wonderful finished quilts.
