Community peace quilt progressing


The Peace Resource Center at Wilmington College inaugurated its first community-based peace quilt this summer and fall. On Tuesday during the college’s Westheimer Peace Symposium, a quilting station to work on the peace quilt was set up in Boyd Cultural Arts Center to further ensure that multiple people create the quilt together. Already decorated squares from the community were nearby on a display rack. Contributors included Arcadia Learning Commons, Wilmington A.M. Rotary Club, Wilmington Public Library, Society of Friends groups, the Girl Scouts of Western Ohio, and three squares from St. Columbkille Catholic Church. The decorated squares will be sewn over the following months into a community quilt, with the support of The Cotton Junky store in Wilmington. Using markers to draw upon squares Tuesday are, from left, Marissa Johnson and Miranda Knisley, both WC students.
