The Memorial Quilt will be displayed at the Townsville Walk To Remember.
SANDS Townsville invites you to beautify by painting, sewing, quilting etc your story of your precious baby/babies on a square of material. The story may include whatever you like, your family, your pregnancy, the death or the grief journey you have travelled. This is your personal story so we will leave it up to you.
Your special patch will then become a piece of a Memorial Quilt. It is our intention to have the Memorial Quilt displayed at this year’s Walk To Remember.
You may use any colour of fabric 35 cm square with the contents of your work using 29 cm square. This will leave 3cm on all sides for quilter to sew all the special patches together. A diagram outlining the design is below.
We would appreciate if you could have your patch/patches ready by 1 October 2015. Please phone or email Sands Townsville for details where to deliver or post to Walk To Remember, PO Box 1879, Aitkenvale QLD 4814.
