In our region, barn quilts are popular. These are large painted quilts that appear on barns. These quilts tell a story about the property or family that live there. This activity could be adapted so that participants choose colours and patterns that tell a story about their life.

Hi Alison

Thanks. Glad you like it.

We did some patchwork using paper.
Over the course of a couple of sessions, we painted the flowers (about 10cm square of white, 6 to an A4 page).
The next session we centred the flowers on a background page using glue.
Then the residents helped to choose four pieces to join together to make another square using sticky tape on the back.
Finally, I put the medium size squares together to make a large "quilt" to adorn a wall in our dining room.
