MANY HANDS MAKE A QUILT: SHORT HISTORIES OF RADICAL QUILTING by Jess Bailey
A5, 56 pages, Full colour printed, Perfect bound, Softcover, 2021
Taking radical action is nurtured by quilting. Quilts are tender, fierce, and reliable. They are provocative and reparative. Quilts hold people and stories. As they conform to the unique shape of a body beneath their cascading surface, they affirm the vitality of love and safety. From police abolition to the AIDS crisis, communities have turned to the collective intimacies of quilting in moments of need. This publication takes you through quilts of history to look at how quilting has been used by communities and individuals to enact radical action. Profits benefiting The Navajo Quilt Project.
