Signature Quilt

The Sig­na­ture Quilt is a mas­sive 3.152.55 m exam­ple of wom­en’s sol­i­dar­i­ty in cel­e­brat­ing achievements. 

Many thou­sands of hours went into its cre­ation and research is con­tin­u­ing to this day into the lives of women who signed it.

The Sig­na­ture Quilt holds 342 sig­na­to­ries form­ing a Patch­work of Empowerment.

The cal­i­co rec­tan­gles are each signed by an Aus­tralian woman who has record­ed firsts or sig­nif­i­cant achieve­ments in their field. The alter­nate patch­es of pat­terned fab­ric were select­ed to illus­trate the sig­na­to­ries pro­fes­sion or achievement.
