Harefield Hospital Centenary Quilt Commission

About this project

In 2015 I was commissioned to make a commemorative and celebratory quilt to mark 100 years of the hospital. The quilt consists of over 400 hand stitched patchwork hexagons using details from the hospital archives, photos, nurses uniforms and cloth dyed using plants from the grounds. Staff and volunteers contributed to the making of the quilt through a series of workshops. It is now on display in the hospital entrance.
