I offer as a symbol of hope this Baby Squash Blossom Quilt Pattern for all the children and families of the Indigenous community and all Canadians who share the tragedy and loss of children.
This quilt pattern was designed because of request from Kathleen Hone O’Flaherty. She started a baby quilt donation program for babies taken into care by Family and Children’s’ Services. Many generous Niagara Region,ON quilters have sewn over 200 baby Quilts in two years. Kathleen learned that there are, on any given day in Niagara Region alone, over 200 Indigenous children in care. The need is great here and maybe in your community as well. Quilts are always welcome but I recommend that you work with your local indigenous community to seek their approval for donations.
This pattern is intended for donation purposes and may not be used for commercial uses.
