This tactile and eye catching quilt has been collaboratively designed by members and volunteers in the Designs in Mind studio.

Each design has been created and printed using a stencilling method, which offered an inclusive way to bring print into the main studio. Some elements have been hand embroidered to enhance the piece, before constructing it,using cotton batting for a quality made mini quilt. All the main body fabrics have been donated or purchased second hand and repurposed. We believe the fibre compositions to be linen and ramie fabrics.
