E Pluribus Unum Project
- What? 102 Art Quilts
- How? Designed, created, and quilted by HollyAnne Knight
- Why? To honor childhood cancer fighters past and present
Are you the parent of a child who has or had cancer? We would love to include his or her name on the back of one of your state's quilts!
The E Pluribus Unum Project is a collection of 102 art quilts representing the 50 states and the District of Columbia. The primary purpose of the project is to raise awareness in the art and quilting communities about the prevalence of childhood cancer and the necessity that we all come together to fight against it. Each state will have two quilts, one of the silhouette of the state, and one of the state capital city’s skyline. On the backs of the quilts will be written as many names of childhood cancer fighters as we can collect, grouped by their home state. The quilts will be hung with both sides showing to create a “wall” of names to honor these brave children who fight for their lives.
