Regent Park Quilt

regent-quilt.jpg
Mary Wiens spoke with members of the Regent Park Women and Families Quilting Group. They told her about the art and emotion of quilting.

Their quilt, commissioned by The Daniels Corporation, was unveiled at Paintbox Condominiums on Wednesday, June 13th. The fabric narrative they stitched captures the past and future of Regent Park as seen through the eyes of the people who live there. The quilt is 90 inches wide and 77 inches long, and took 870 hours to complete.

The women feel encouraged by their first steps towards the creation of a successful micro-business. Their quilt will hang permanently in the lobby of Paintbox Condominiums.
