GQ Members Hand Over Anniversary Wall Hanging to Lakeside Primary School

10 Nov

On 8 November GQ members Hilary Carney, Monica Dennis, Pam Stead and Isobelle Davis visited Lakeside Primary School in Cardiff to present the school with a wall hanging to mark the school’s 50th anniversary.

It is a project that they have been working with the children on over the last year.

The main panels focus on events that happened during the 6 decades that the school has been open and the top panel acknowledges the many clubs that the school runs, its links with St Gerard’s School, Lesotho and the work of the Parent Teacher Association. The hand prints at the bottom were created by the reception class. The central panel shows the school’s special 50th anniversary logo created by a year 6 pupil and the school’s motto – Living and Learning Together. The whole thing is decorated with dragonflies which are a feature of the school’s logo

The wall hanging was unveiled at the school’s assembly and well received with lots of oohs and aah’s from the children.

The children have been invited to enter a competition – to either count or guess how many dragonflies there are on the wall hanging – and the prize – chocolate money – yummy!!!

GQ members involved hope that the wall hanging provides happy memories of the schools 50th anniversary for many years to come.

    Hello Fellow Quilters,
    I would like to introduce myself to your group.
    My name is Heather and I am from Kangaroo Island in South Australia.
    I have been designing patterns for Patchwork and Stitcheries since 2009 quite a few of my designs feature appliqué and some have a uniquely Australian flavour.
    My patterns are now available as downloads through the website
    If you purchase my patterns as downloads it is inexpensive, no postage and you receive the pattern ordered shortly after placing the order.

    I would appreciate if you could give this information to your guild members
    Regards Heather
