The Mother’s Dream Quilt project was started by Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America as a way to bring awareness to the loss that families endure because of gun violence in America. From the website:
“Using fabric donated by mothers across the country, we created a series of quilts using a pattern known as “Mother’s Dream.” Each quilt contains at least one block composed of meaningful fabric from a victim or survivor of gun violence. These special blocks are surrounded by quilt blocks from mothers who share in our collective sadness over too many lives shattered by gunfire. Everyone who contributes also submits a statement of their “Mother’s Dream” for their children, or the story of the victim or survivor represented by the block.”
Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Cookeville is very honored to be among the first places in Cookeville to host the Tennessee Dream Quilt. This Sunday (12/2) is the last day you can come and see it in person and read the stories of each block. Service is at 10:00 am.
