Stitching our stories together


The Corona Quilt Project is a global community initiative, asking people from all over the world to creatively express their experience with the pandemic. The Corona Quilt is made up of squares created by people from all over the world. It is a collective, tangible voice of disruption and hope, loss and possibility, grief and new beginnings. We invite you to give meaning to your experience and join your voice with others by creating your own square, today.


We are collectively living through an epochal moment in time. Whatever you may feel – hope, clarity, connection, grief, fear, overwhelmed – you’re not alone. Your square connects you to others while we are all physically apart. To participate you can submit a physical or digital square. You don’t have to know how to sew or do crafts to participate! We welcome drawings, collages, quilts, made with fabric, paint, paper, or found objects. Anything made by hand is perfect. Recycle your old clothes, or gather from your environment. We invite participation from young and old, from anywhere on the planet.

The work is hard
Your fingers may bleed.
But each cloth stitched together
Brings together a community.
A world, our future world
Under one colorful quilt.
The new quilt of humanity.
Julia Myers


This pandemic has been a truly defining moment in our lifetimes. By attempting to creatively capture our experience, we hope to give voice to people’s varied thoughts, fears and stories. Our goal is to gather squares/stories from people all over the world. We will stitch these together to create a quilt installation that will be a fitting testament to this unique time of change, survival and perseverance.
