Projects

Special Care Baby Unit

 

We make small quilts for local Special Care Baby Units. They are put in the incubators to cushion

the baby, brighten the appearance of the unit and make it seem more homely. Each

baby has their own quilt and these are taken home by the parents, whatever the outcome of

the baby’s hospital stay.

It is a project which is dear to the hearts of many of our members and is much appreciated by

both the hospital staff and the parents. Over the past few years about 250 quilts have been

delivered to Bristol.

Brainwave

 

At Weston Super Quilts, we raise money through a raffle for a charity. In 2012 this money was
given to Brainwave, who used it to help a particular small boy, so we decided to work together to
make him a quilt. We were told that he is interested in helicopters, so one member made
a foundation-pieced heicopter and it was surrounded by pinwheel blocks made by other
members. A few people worked together to assemble the quilt and it was then passed to the
boy by the representative of Brainwave.
