Offers an examination of Canada's Quilt of Belonging through an inspiring tale of its design and creation, highlighting the 263 blocks that represent the similarities and differences between all the nations of the world that are presented.

Perseus Publishing
From Albania to Zimbabwe, every nation of the world is represented in Canada's Quilt of Belonging. Each block symbolizes one country and was created by someone originally from that place. This unique and highly visual book highlights dozens of individual blocks and tells the fascinating stories of the groups they represent. Each block showcases beautiful craftwork: some are embroidered, some knitted; others are embellished with beads, butterfly wings, porcupine quills, and many other materials. Placing the quilt within a larger cultural context, the book explores the history of quilting and describes how scraps of fabric have long been used to tell stories and remember the past.

While this is an interesting little book I really wish the library had the full-size adult version which contains a whole page of information for each and every quilt square.
