We are asking each athlete and their families to make a Piece 4 Peace for the Beautiful Games.
Students in Bermuda are also asked to participate.
Together we will create a huge patchwork quilt – 1 World Bermuda, the Beautiful Games for World Peace. The quilt will serve as an artistic expression of our desire to bring the youth of the world together in competition and in fellowship toward advancing communication between cultures and advancing the mission of world peace. The quilt will be on display in various places and will continue to be added to.
How can each person participate? Each person l is invited to make and contribute squares that express messages of Peace and Hope. The Quilt Squares: Must be size 14” x 14” (35 x 35 cm.) You must leave 1” from each size (2.5 cm) around the edges for the squares to be joined together .
The background squares must be cotton fabric.
They may be decorated in any technique – appliqué, embroidery, glued, beaded, drawn with permanent pens or markers – in any and all colors of the rainbow.
Each participant should sign her name and her school and state/province and country on her square in permanent pen or marker.
The squares will be collected during registration at the Fairmont Southampton on Thursday May 4th.
Selected squares will be displayed at the Bermuda Society of Arts! The Bermuda student squares will be joined by the athletes squares. The quilt will be displayed at the closing ceremony then we will send the quilt to the United Nations as a symbol of peace and in honor of all children everywhere who find themselves in armed conflict.
