Small Victories

With The Lyceum Students + Queen West Community


Using wool blanket remnants, embroidery thread, roving and found object embellishments, the Lyceum students created a victory quilt installation. Each square represents a humble beginning that became a small triumph of individual will, a push through the inertia or a stake against uncertainty. With dedication to hope and renewal, this collective quilt came to represent making a future out of the pieces from the past, reconfigured with experience acknowledged, bound together by purpose and community.

“The great victory, which appears so simple today, was the result of a series of small victories that went unnoticed”

– Paul Coelho
