Lockdown Quilt

Waltham Forest Sewers Create their own Record of Lockdown


I am one of a group of sewers in Waltham Forest who have been making ‘scrubs’ for NHS workers. We have been asked to make a panel for a quilt, to provide a record of the things that we have been doing during lockdown. The panel is 20cm by 20cm and although it is not up to the standards of the Bayeux Tapestry, it was fun to make. My theme was taken from the picture book, ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ by Sam McBratney - you may recognise the rabbits from the book at the bottom of the panel.   

Sewing for many people is a great way to relax and all you need is some fabric, scissors, a needle and thread. So, why not try one for yourself and start creating your own fabric record of how you are spending your time.

Best wishes to you and all your family,
