More than 30 volunteers from a community voluntary sewing group called the Butterfly Legacy Project gathered together to celebrate the big reveal of their hand-crafted Jubilee quilts.

The volunteers were tasked with sewing a square for the quilt that depicted their take on the last 70 years of the Queen's reign.

Two large and intricately woven quilts were produced, which most volunteers who helped gathered to see on June 10.

Volunteer at the Butterfly Legacy Project, Jackie Westwood, said: "It’s a beautiful piece, and the big reveal was made today to the group. Whilst not everyone could attend, a great day was had by all."

Whilst generally sewing for NHS, Care Homes and raising money for local charities and needy causes, the group took a small break to mark this special once-in-a-lifetime occasion.

The group aims to help people and serve the local community and they plan on displaying the quilt for members of the public to enjoy.

For instance, the Quilt was recently on display at St Ives Market, where they raised money for a family that lost everything in a house fire.

The group encourages anyone interested in displaying the quilts to contact jwestwood9@icloud.com.
