Attention to all Indigenous Peoples – A Call for Quilt Blocks

Attention to all Indigenous Peoples: Inuit, Metis, & First Nations!!

A call for quilt blocks acknowledging and honouring our pain and horror, BUT MOVING ON TO HEALING, TO LIVING A GOOD LIFE.

As part of my efforts to help us along on our personal healing journeys, I am putting out a call for quilt blocks. Each square should be 13” x13”. The design is yours; the colours are yours; the embellishments are yours; the materials you use are your choice. Just make sure the blocks can be added and used in the quilt. You can even paint on canvas or stiff paper, or use photos or pictures, because I can get these things transferred onto fabric – which can then be used in the quilt. If you have any questions about what media you can use, please get a hold of me.The project is to create a quilt made up of the squares sent in to me by Indigenous Peoples who contribute a square depicting the theme. Each block is to be about what you want to express regarding residential schools . It can be about what you experienced, or it can be about how you have compassion for what others of Our Peoples went thru – whatever it is YOU want to share or express. The quilt will hang at the National Research Centre on residential schools when it is established. All the blocks have to be in my hands by Aboriginal Day, June 21, 2008 .

When you send your block in to me, Please include:

A long or short story telling what your square is about,
Your name and address,
Your email address (if you have one) and
Your phone #. I may need to ask you something about your square and I would like to keep you informed about the progress of the quilt and maybe even be able to send you a picture of the completed quilt.

When your square is finished, please send it to:
