The Hospice Quilt
Completed in 2003 after twelve months of “work” by Hospice volunteers with Viki Elphinstone as manager.
The quilt was then brought together by Jan Nes, also a volunteer and co-ordinator for Hospice Care at Smithton and, also, a member of the Circular Head Quilters Group.
Each square depicts the manner in which the Volunteer considers their work, clients and the Association in general.
Completed with the intention of hanging in the “Hospice” when it comes to fruition, but until then it currently hangs in the passage of the Hospice Palliative Care Offices at Parkside in Burnie.
