As many guilds do, we provide many quilts or other handmade items to the community. Community or “Comfort Quilts” is a term used to describe the donation of quilts to those in need.
For 2014-2016 our group has made a commitment for a group project to support Hospice Fredericton. Hospice Fredericton is building the region’s first residential hospice—a safe and medically supported environment where patients facing end-of-life care challenges can spend their last days in comfort and peace, surrounded by family and friends. Providing quilts for these patients is a means of keeping them warm as well as showing care and caring.
Keswick Ridge Quilters will provide 20 bed quilts to Hospice Fredericton. Below are some of the completed projects.
