Houston Declares Quilt of Belonging Day

Carol White

As we waited anxiously for news of the Quilt of Belonging at the Houston Quilt Show, it was exciting to learn that the 120 foot long masterpiece was being received with rave reviews. However, no one was prepared for the honour bestowed by the City of Houston.

City Council Member, M.J. Khan commented on the dynamic international community in Houston and growing friendship/ties between Canada and Houston and cited the important contributions of Canadian professionals and businesses to Houston. He then presented a proclamation to Esther Bryan on behalf of the city of Houston declaring October 31st as “Quilt of Belonging Day”. Khan said the proclamation was an expression of appreciation for sharing this remarkable project with the citizens of Houston.
