Living Healing Quilt Project
Promoting Healing – One Stitch at a Time

This post is part of the Living Healing Quilt Project that honours the strength, courage, and commitment of Indian Residential School Survivors. This quilt block is from Quilt 1 – Schools of Shame.

My quilt piece is dedicated to all the mothers of residential school children. I shudder in horror to think of how these poor women had their children taken from them. How you must have suffered. My wish is to give all of you a big hug. Also for you to know that people really care about all of you and your children. It does not matter how old we are, we are all still somebody’s child.
