This quilt will premiere at the at Voices in Cloth 2016 Quilt Show, a show of over 300 quilts in Richmond, CA. The image below is the design draft. I will replace it when the completed quilt.

Row 2 has 4 large blue squares, each containing a photograph of a child with their information below.

Row 3: text box: “There is no “mercy” in killing. No explanation that justifies taking a child’s life. It is simply murder. To say otherwise dishonors all the disabled children killed by the people they love.

Row 5: One blue square: Julian Roary, Jr.

Text box: “We must be concerned not merely about who murdered them, but about the system, the way of life, the philosophy which produced the murderers.” Martin Luther King, Jr. Eulogy for the Martyred Children (1963)
