Honoring Frontline Workers

WDVW 25 Virginia - Diane Canney is honoring frontline workers and those who have lost their lives to Covid-19, one quilt square at a time.



LOUDOUN COUNTY, Va. (WDVM) — Diane Canney became inspired to make a change after she had a conversation with her mother earlier this year about the pandemic. 

Using her artistic imagination, Canney envisioned a way for people of all ages and backgrounds to participate. 

“This project began probably a month ago when my mother asked me, at age 95, to do something for her as a birthday present. In her generation, they often did very community-minded efforts in times of crisis… I think during a time of uncertainty in America like this, during the pandemic, all of our lives have been affected. So my main goal was to collectively have Americans thank our frontline workers, and then honor and remember those who have passed away from Covid,” said Canney.

She said this is a project anyone ages five through 95 can participate in.
