January: Heritage Quilt project is in progress

Members of the Western Branch of the Irish Patchwork Society are working on a group heritage quilt which will be donated to the Galway City Museum during the exhibition there in May.

The quilt will be made up of various sized blocks, depicting scenes from Galway city, county and the West of Ireland.

All of these will be assembled into a quilt over the coming months.

The photo shows work in progress on a block depicting 'The Long Walk' by the Corrib Quilters. The block is being made in 3 sections (sky, houses and water) and uses a variety of piecing and applique techniques. The finer details will be stitched on top. Photos of more blocks to follow!
