The Quilt of Belonging is unlike any quilt you’ve seen before. Made by volunteers across this country, this stunning, collaborative textile art project shows there is a place for all in the fabric of society. The tapestry is 120 feet (36 metres) long and 10.5 feet (3.5 metres) high. Its 263 blocks tells the story of Canada and its people, from the First Nations through to our newest members of society.
We are still looking for volunteers!
