Drones Quilt #1

This is the first of four Drones Quilts that have been completed.  Each quilt is made of 36 blocks which have been sent to me from all over the U.S. and even two blocks from a mother and daughter in France.  You can see all four quilts on the page “The Exhibit on Tour.”

The Drones Quilt Project Exhibit consists of the four quilts, plus four large information panels, and a resource/take action handout.  The first showing of the full exhibit was just completed at the Veterans For Peace convention in Madison, Wisconsin.  I received many positive comments about the project.  People were impressed by the love and caring that were evident in the blocks.

The idea is for this to be an ongoing project.  We need more quilt blocks to complete the fifth quilt, and when it is finished, we will start on the sixth.  The United States continues to kill innocent people with drones, and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism is working hard to identify the unnamed victims.  As more names become known we will continue to memorialize those lives through the Drones Quilt Project.

Please help support this project by making a quilt block, hosting the exhibit, making a financial contribution or forwarding information about the project to your friends, family and other anti-drone activists.

  1. Hi Leah,
    I have been meaning to write, and to create a quilt square. I am a member of Upstate Coalition to Ground the Drones, and End the Wars, and have bee active at Hancock, and here in Rochester. Please send me a name, and the size that you would like. I am a sewer, so I do have a variety of fabric.
    Peace,
    Sandy Fessler
