As a 1:1 activity, I visit each resident and we make a paper quilt square.

We attach them all together and eventually when we have restrictions lifted, we can all enjoy the "quilt" we made together.

I call it the "We are in this Together Quilt".

I use scraps of scrapbooking paper and let the residents choose their pattern layout.

We are facilitating the community quilt activity on the eldercare ward at our hospital. Patients love the idea of a long term project, to work on. As staff, we are looking forward to having a positive reminder of what we achieved during the pandemic.

Emma,
That's awesome! I am happy to know I inspired you to make a community project. I really does create a sense of unity especially during this pandemic. Happy creating everyone!

I am sending out paper based activity packs to our stuck at home clients, I have included a pack of template, cardboard and coloured paper, from this activity--hopefully I will get lots back and will be able to put them together and display in our library.

Kathie,
They will love having something they ALL did "together". I love doing community projects!!! Another one I did years ago was Picket Garden Fence. Each resident painted a 2ft garden picket. I then stapled them to runners across the back to build the fence. We staked them around the community garden. New residents received their picket in their Activity Welcome Basket they received on my first visit with them. After they were finished painting, assistance offered if needed, we added them to the fence. Pickets of residents who passed were added to the Memorial Garden.
It was a great way for everyone to come together as a community and remember the ones who passed.
Have fun, and send a picture!!!

It's great for reminiscing! I found a book of patterns too. We look through the book and talk about each pattern. I knew a little bit about quilts, but I have learned a ton doing this project.
