Better Together: An SJSA Community Quilt
Better Together is a community quilt made by diverse SJSA participants in programming across the US. Made in the fall of 2016, this quilt shows how we are better together when we vote for what we believe in. We’re better together when we fight against gun violence and mass shootings. We’re better together when we protect our planet and our water supplies. Themes of political hope and environmental awareness run through this quilt along with other varying ideas such as our addiction to our cell phones, equal gender rights, and justice in general as a concept. Love is there too in a beautiful quilt square of multicolored entwined hands that reminds us: we’re better when we are together, we can do more to right wrongs together. These quilt blocks were embroidered by SJSA volunteers; with the top being pieced by Sara Trail and long-arm quilted by Nancy Williams.
