Around the World Digital Quilt

Friday, April 30, 2021 @ 12:00 pm


Whether you’re studying remotely in another city, country, or locally in the Waterloo region, join us in making our very first grad student digital quilt!



Step 1: Start thinking about a drawing, photo, poem, or short story describing where you are in the world right now. This can be a photo of your workspace complete with coffee and papers, a painting of a snowy landscape, a poem about life in your city, and so on… be as creative as you like! Size your creation to 1080 x 1080 pixels. See here for a template.

Step 2: If you need help thinking of ideas or would like a space to work, watch the recording from our Quilt Making Workshop for some inspiration. Watch a recording of the workshop here.

Step 3: DEADLINE EXTENDED: Submit your digital quilt piece by tagging @gsa.uwaterloo and #gsaworldquilt, or email it to by April 30. Remember to have the piece sized to 1080 x 1080 pixels.

Step 4: Watch a live reveal of the quilt on our Instagram Stories in May!

Can’t wait to see us all connected through this digital quilt.

Good luck with your creations!
