Between September 2021 and March 2022 we met with a wonderful team of Quinton residents aged 50+ to take part in our Metre Meadow project; a community wildflower ‘sewing’ and ‘sowing’ project to help brighten up the area. 

We met monthly to stitch wildflower designs at Toby Carvery and Quinton Library and in collaboration with The Patchwork Meadow we went out and about preparing soil and sowing 150m sq of wildflower meadows on private land within the area. It’s lovely now seeing the blooms!

Some pics from our celebration event and exhibition of artworks on 26 April at Lightwoods House.

The artworks then went on display in windows around Quinton for everyone to enjoy (see map below for the host venues).

The artworks are now in their new home at Quinton Library, where many of the stitchers still meet up once a month. Everyone welcome to join them! Contact the library for dates and times of meet ups.
