RUBY ROSE QUILT at the Festival of Quilts, August 2018
Thank you to everyone who contributed to making the Ruby Rose quilt. So many people stopped to have a good look at the quilt and take photographs. Congratulations, ladies, we did a great job!
About the Ruby Rose Quilt Malvern Quilters hold an exhibition every two years and as part of that exhibition we make a quilt to be raffled, with proceeds going to the charity chosen by the current president. In 2019 it will be our 40th anniversary, or Ruby anniversary. We have made a quilt that was inspired by the style of Charles Rennie Macintosh and his Glasgow Rose. It was exhibited at the international Festival of Quilts on 9 – 12 August 2018. Young Minds is the charity for 2019, chosen by our current president, Pamela Wild. This charity supports young people who are struggling with mental health issues, and also supports their parents with practical guidance on how to help their child. The reason she chose this charity is in memory of her brother Ian who struggled for many years with the terrible symptoms of schizophrenia, and also to honour the support given to him by their mum and dad through some very tough times.
