A church in Stonehaven was awash with colour last week as a display of quilts covered every single pew for a dazzling display.

St James Church, in Arbuthnott Street, even had its altar rail and pulpit decorated as it was used to display the work of the Path n’ Pud Group.

They worked many long hours to create the display.

Over 150 visitors attended the show, and all proceeds were in aid of Breast Cancer Care and the St James’ roof fund.

£250 was raised for the charities..

And there was a ‘Log Cabin Challenge’ and the winner was Mrs Diane Fleming, who had hand-quilted a king-size quilt emphasising the contrasts that can be achieved with this particular style of quilting.

Log Cabin is a particular form of design which is supposed to represent the hearth of a log cabin.

People that attended the display were said to be impressed with the colourful display and change of scenery in the church.

Organiser Diane Fleming said: “Many visitors remarked on the wow factor with comments such as ‘I’m blown away’ and ‘fantastic’.

“Our ambition was to cover every pew in the church with hand-made quilt, and we succeeded,” she added.
