Emergency Quilt *PHASE 1*

Emergency blanket and paint — 2023

EMERGENCY QUILT is a series of emergency blankets (a light metal-coated sheet designed to trap body heat) ornamented with traditional quilt patterns. It is an act of solidarity with the rising number of homeless people in Canada. This “Rail Fence” quilt pattern is the first of a series started in Halifax, Nova Scotia (where the number of homeless people doubled last year), as the initial phase of a larger community project.
