Maryland Memory Quilts

Maryland Memory Quilts are made up of squares depicting the lives of loved ones who
have been taken by suicide. The purpose of the quilts is to show a "picture of suicide" that
will serve as a visual image of the huge number of suicides that occur in America today
(over 36,000 every year).

These quilts have been displayed all over the United States, even on the steps of the Capitol
in Washington D.C. Wherever they go, the power of the quilts to touch, heal, liberate, and
empower is amazing. Quilts are now being put together for each state and many specialty groups.

The Maryland State Quilts will represent the State of Maryland.   We hope to increase the Maryland public's awareness of suicide by displaying the quilts at conferences, schools, and public events.
