Domestic Violence Awareness Quilt

The Sit’n'Stitch group Frayed Edges volunteered to take on a Guild project, that of making the “Domestic Violence Awareness Quilt” for the Department of Corrections (DOC).  This was a queen size wall-display type quilt featuring a large tree with flowing bare branches.

The quilt was presented to the DOC Secretary and staff on March 22nd, 2010.  The quilt was circulated among six DOC district offices. Hundreds of purple leaves had been made (purple is the designated color representing domestic violence), upon which were written the names of violence victims at the District offices.  The quilt was returned to to Frayed Edges, and the “named” leaves appliquéd on.  The quilt was hung on display in the Capitol for a time.
