Quilt Project :: C.V. Starr Adult Day Services

C.V. Starr is a program that provides a therapeutic day for seniors with low to mid level dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.  Diane Schneck, making art work craft teacher developed a 6 session project to introduce participants in the program to some of the history and popular themes quiltmaking, as well as enlist their aid in “designing” a series of quilts. Precut pieces are provided, and the participants create their own fabric compositions. The quilts are then pinned, labeled and assembled by the making art work teaching artists. The finished pieces are colorful and evocative. The entire series of quilts will be shown in 2012.
