100 squares, 3 months and reams of fabric later, New Brighton volunteer Pat Jefford unveiled her latest patchwork quilt to staff & volunteers at the New Brighton shop.  Pat has made quilts for Wirral Hospice St John’s before – one was sold at Heswall charity shop for £150.  However, Pat says that this quilt will be donated to Peachy a charity to support young people with emotional problems affecting their mental health, a cause close to her heart.

A professional curtain maker and avid sewer, Pat uses a 1950’s Singer hand sewing machine to create her patchwork wonders – she says as soon as she finishes one she starts another.  This one is sewed on peach fabric in honour of the charity it will go to; her quilts truly are a labour of love.
