More squares, vicar!

Dear quilters everywhere,
If any of you heard about the drones quilt and thought, “what a good idea!” and then life took over and no square happened, fear ye not.

We’ve had so many requests for the big quilt – eventually 13m x 2m – that we’re making a smaller one. Unfortunately, there are more than enough names to make many many quilts, so making another, more portable quilt won’t be a problem…so long as we have people like YOU to make squares and prayers.

Names of civilian victims are available here. If you’re making it as part of a group project, in the interest of trying to cover as many names with as fewer duplicates as possible, please let me know which list/source you’d like so I can tell you if someone’s covered it yet.

What to make:
A square of material (something sturdy-ish but not denim/leather)
30x30cm
with the name of a drones victim
your name
and prettiness

Adding the age of the victim and yourself is optional. For a few ideas, see the homepage.

Then send it to:
Drones quilt
Peace House
19 Paradise Street
Oxford
OX1 1LD

Don’t worry if art isn’t your thing. What matters is remembering civilian victims as people and not statistics. Let’s make this thing beautiful!
