New Bradwell was my first large school project. I worked with 435 children from the age of 4-11 and actually this volume of children has not been topped!. Each year group used a particular textile technique to create the inital letter of their name and I stitched them together to make a quilt 3m by 3m. I also machine embroidered and quilted a collage of the school which features at the bottom of the quilt.
This quilt has a bonus as well, the children drew a memory of their time at New Bradwell on the reverse of the quilt. This added element presented a further challenge to the construction, but it resulted in a great collection of sketches and funny pictures that are really personal to the school.
