Quilt for a Queen

To mark Her Majesty the Queen’s 90th birthday in 2016, BERNINA invited contributions to a special “Quilt For A Queen”, a project to create a unique gift to mark this special occasion while raising funds for Friends of the Elderly, one of the charities of which Her Majesty is patron. From all the blocks submitted 60 squares were selected by an invited panel of judges, including world-renowned quilter Philippa Naylor, to create the quilt that will be given to Her Majesty.
In addition a virtual online quilt, including each contributor's name has been created.
Thanks to leading quilters Janice Gunner for piecing and Linzi Upton for quilting the finished quilt.
