A beautiful gesture from local quilters to support bereaved families.
Forensic Medicine Social Workers in Newcastle have been given a beautiful new quilt incorporating New South Health Pathology’s “kinship” poster design.
The quilt was made by Ann Leonard, a retired physiotherapist from Hunter New England Health who is a member of the Wangi Quilters. The Quilters have collaborated on three other extraordinary quilts that are used when families visit Forensic Medicine to spend time with their loved ones.
Ann produced this quilt over many months and credits her fellow quilters with design inspiration. Forensic Medicine Social Worker Noelle says the quilts bring comfort to families every day and we thank Ann and the Wangi Quilters for their generosity.
