Class 4 Quilt

Inspired by the Ely Diocese Church Schools Quilt, the children in class 4 designed their own based on their journey through Denver School.  This was a project during art lesson with the emphasis on textiles. 

During the summer of 2012, London hosted the Olympics, something the children may never experience in this country again, so it made a lasting impression on them.  This is reflected in many of the panels along with family holidays, favourite pastimes, going to festivals, the military in our area, to taking the dog for a walk as a symbolic journey. 

The panels were created by using applique and a variety of embroidery stitches.
