The Women’s Quilt project

Calling all my crafty people, can you help with The Women’s Quilt project?

“598 women were killed by a current or former partner in the UK between 2009 and 2015. That’s approximately 2 a week. The plan is to create a quilt made of patches with their names on, ideally for IWD on the 8th of March, this means patches need to be finished before March.”

There’s a facebook group which is co-ordinating the quilt project: The Women’s Quilt. In it you’ll find a pinned post with all the details and a list of the names which still need making.

Please share amongst your networks, and I know we can help them complete it for IWD!

Here are some of the patches which the project has received so far (photo by Roxanne Ellis in The Women’s Quilt Facebook Group).
