www.wellingtonquilters.org.nz/wellington-quilters

Project Coordinator 

A 2018 initiative where Wellington Quilters made and donated 10+ quilts for Wellington Hospital. The quilts are used to drape over the mortuary trolley when transporting a deceased loved one from a ward to the mortuary. It is comforting and respectful for the family to have a soft, calming quilt wrapping the metal trolley. WQ had a big push to produce one quilt for each ward of Wellington Hospital.
