‘All We Are Saying’ Peace Squares blanket update.

Just a quick update, showing you some of the lovely new peace squares we’ve received over the last couple of weeks for the Peace Blanket which will be part of the ‘All We Are Saying’ exhibition at the Holy Biscuit, in Newcastle upon Tyne in September.

To date, we have over 40 squares (many I still haven’t shown you yet!) that have arrived to us from around the World, to be sewn into the blanket but I also know there are many more making their way to us.

There is still time, if you would like to be involved, check out the details at the below all these beautiful Peace Squares.

Call out for squares:
We would love people to submit squares to be stitched into our blanket. These can be made in any textile media, including crocheted, knitted, embroidery, beaded, fabric painted, patchwork and quilting. They can be as detailed as you have time for and we are very happy to encourage as many young people and children to be involved in this, too. When designing your piece, please remember that this is an optimistic and positive project and we do not wish to offend anyone with the wording or imagery. The squares should be 20 x 20 cm, with an extra 1cm for seam allowance.

These squares can either be made in the gallery during the exhibition in September or can be posted to:
Blanket for Peace,
The Holy Biscuit,
1 Clarence St,
Shieldfield,
Newcastle upon Tyne.
NE2 1YH

Please send your squares before the end of September to ensure their inclusion in the ‘Blanket for Peace’.

  2. I am hoping we’ll have enough squares to make two blankets, so the final final deadline is the 3rd of October. So don’t worry, you have plenty of time and it will be great to see it! x

    My block is finally done. I put it in the mail today. I hope you get it in time… the post office wasn’t very forthcoming on how long international mail might take! I’ll be posting about my contribution sometime later this week.

  4. Thankyou Kit! I am so looking forward to seeing it! Do you mind if I also ‘re-blog’ your post about it too when it’s up on your site? It’s a privilege to have you be involved in this project. Take care and I’ll let you know when it arrives xx
